Stopping NetworkManager Doesn’t Shut Down Network Interfaces

Hi All,

When I stop NetworkManager using the “systemctl stop NetworkManager”, it doesn’t bring network interfaces down. This behaviour is different than network service in CentOS 5/6. Is this the expected behaviour or a bug or configurable? I expected all networking to be shut down down after stopping NetworkManager.

Please comment.
