Hi, I have Fedora 23 server installed on my server and disabled NetworkManager:

systemctl stop NetworkManager.service
systemctl disable NetworkManager.service
Now, I tried to start network.service but failed with the following message.
# systemctl status network
● network.service - LSB: Bring up/down networking

Could you use the -l option when trying to get the status so messages are not truncated?

I edited the post to contain the output with -l option.

I am facing same issue. Need to use network service to create bridge interface for xen project :(

NetworkManagerr does not support bridge connection and network service cannot be started.

try to use 'nm-connection-editor', also, check your /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-NIC files.

I checked the ifcfg files but didn't find any anomaly:( and again, I'm trying to use network.serive, so nm-connection-editor is no use because it uses NetworkManager.
