CentOS7 Failed to start LSB: Bring up/down networking. [How to Solve]

Today, I installed Openstack with CentOS7 RDO, and the documentation says that I have to disable NetworkManager and use the network service to do so.
But when I start with the service network start command, I get the following error.
[[email protected] network-scripts]# service network start

See ‘systemctl status network.service’ and ‘journalctl -xn’ for details.[FAILED][[email protected] network-scripts]# systemctl status network.servicenetwork.service – LSB: Bring up/down networking   Loaded: loaded (/etc/rc.d/init.d/network)   Active: failed (Result: exit-code) since Sat 2015-03-07 02:53:12 EST; 6s ago  Process: 8596 ExecStart=/etc/rc.d/init.d/network start (code=exited, status=1/FAILURE)Mar 07 02:53:12 localhost.localdomain network[8596]: RTNETLINK answers: File …Mar 07 02:53:12 localhost.localdomain network[8596]: RTNETLINK answers: File …Mar 07 02:53:12 localhost.localdomain network[8596]: RTNETLINK answers: File …Mar 07 02:53:12 localhost.localdomain network[8596]: RTNETLINK answers: File …Mar 07 02:53:12 localhost.localdomain network[8596]: RTNETLINK answers: File …Mar 07 02:53:12 localhost.localdomain network[8596]: RTNETLINK answers: File …Mar 07 02:53:12 localhost.localdomain systemd-sysctl[8913]: Overwriting earli…Mar 07 02:53:12 localhost.localdomain systemd[1]: network.service: control pr…Mar 07 02:53:12 localhost.localdomain systemd[1]: Failed to start LSB: Bring …Mar 07 02:53:12 localhost.localdomain systemd[1]: Unit network.service entere…Hint: Some lines were ellipsized, use -l to show in full.

Then search online because it did not add HWADDR …. I did delete this one ….
First, look at the log that says which NIC is not UP.

ip addr to view the MACs of these two NICs.
[[email protected] network-scripts]# ip addr

Then write the macs of the two NICs to the configuration file at
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-enp8s0f0
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-enp8s0f1
​​
ADD:
HWADDR=00:0c:bd:05:4e:cc​

Then restart network, and it’s OK!

It’s been a long time since I’ve updated it. In fact, the problem is not necessarily a MAC problem, there are other possibilities. Here is another scenario.
CentOS7 in the virtual machine can’t be networked after reboot, restart network found error reported.

 

Solution: Disable NetworkManager

1. systemctl stop NetworkManager

2. systemctl disable NetworkManager

Then restart the network service and you can network normally!
