Question how to make a network interfaces configuration immutable?


Similar to the linux command "chattr +i filename",
I would sure like to set my eth0 interface immutable. so once I assign the eth0 interface's IP and gateway, make it stay set until I say otherwise.

this way, I can run dhclient or Networkmanager on another interface without having to fret that it may alter this interface.
is there something out there that can do this?
Thanks

Seems a bit excessive .. if you use the following settings then nothing should change what you've configured -

BOOTPROTO=none
NM_CONTROLLED=no
