I tried to Deactivate the cable ens33 in nmtui, and I get an error message NetworkManager TUI

"Could not activate connection: Connection 'ens33' is not available on device ens33 because device is strictly unmanaged"

I've been looking for a solution to all forums on Google, but I can't solve this problem

Os: centos7


You can't change the status of network interface because is set to unmanaged (managed=false). Use nmcli -p device to check it.

Edit the global configuration file /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf as follows:




sudo systemctl restart NetworkManager

Check it through nmcli:

nmcli -p device

The you will be able to activate/desactivate the network.
