Bug ID: 1046973
Summary: Changing YaST2 Wicket service to Network Manager
changes the IP-address
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE Distribution
Version: Leap 42.3
Hardware: Other
OS: Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: Network

I have experienced this confusing behavior also on previous openSUSE releases.

I did recently a new 42.3 installation from DVD media, and let the initial
network configuration be set up automatically, expectately with DHCP.

After the installation I enterde the YaST2 > System > Network setting tool,
edited the network and configured it to the wanted Statical IP address, host
name etc. and saved it.

Rebooted and the wanted IP address was confirmed with ip and ifconfig.

Next started the YaST2 > System > Network setting tool shsom and just changed
the General > Wicket service to Network Manager service and nothing else before

The confusing here is that this step also changes the IP address from the
statical assigned Ip address, possibly back to the initial automatic DHCP
address, which is confirmed both with ip, ifconfig and with Network Manager

Therefore I have had to keep Wicked service to be able keep the wanted statical

Is this a bug somewhere?
