CentOS 7, network manager can't get network active


Hello,
I'm getting the following error trying to setup a network connection

"Could not activate connection: Connection is not available on device p4p1 at this time"

The system is CentOS 7 using network manager. I liked the old system. As far as I can tell with NM you setup a connection and link the connection to the device. When I run "nmtui" the connection appears to be linked but when I try to activate it I get the above error.
I've tried to google the error but don't seem to be able to find anyone who has encountered this error.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I am sure there is more information in the journal. Use journalctl to dump it out (there are options that allow you to limit the output to NetworkManager).

While it was recommended to switch NetworkManager off on a Centos 6 server, I believe it's an integral part of Centos 7 and should remain enabled.

I finally just rebuilt the system. It was quicker to rebuild than spend more time trying to figure out what was wrong.

Thank you
