You can not set the address of the network interface without reconnection
Last modified: 2012-07-24 14:46:44 MSD
Description of problem:
Suppose the network interface is DHCP address.
1. Open the Network Manager
2. Enter the static address (setting the checkbox System Connection)
3. Click apply, enter the root password
4. Nothing happens and the network interface has the old address.
5. In the networkmanager interface disconnect, connect again.
6. Address changed.
It is essential that the address was changed in step 4.

Summary : Network connection manager and user applications
NetworkManager attempts to keep an active network connection available at all
times. It is intended only for the desktop use-case, and is not intended for
usage on servers. The point of NetworkManager is to make networking
configuration and setup as painless and automatic as possible. If using DHCP,
NetworkManager is _intended_ to replace default routes, obtain IP addresses
from a DHCP server, and change nameservers whenever it sees fit.

Is there any comments from developers?
