Overview

This document describes how to disable the Network Manager service. The Network Manager service automates the network's settings and disrupts connections to the IP addresses that reside in the ipaliases module.

Note:

We recommend that you disable the Network Manager service and enable the network.service service before you install cPanel & WHM.

For more information about how to disable the Network Manager service, read RedHat's Disabling Network Manager documentation.

Warnings:

  • cPanel, Inc. does not support the Network Manager service.
  • Exercise extreme caution when you disable the Network Manager. Your server may lose its network services if you do not disable Network Manager correctly.
