Error Restarting Network Service in CentOS 7

linux

Today I got this error message when restarting network service with # systemctl restart network.service or # service network restart:

Restarting network (via systemctl): Job for network.service failed. See 'systemctl status network.service' and 'journalctl -xn' for details.

Browsing around for a while, then found this solution:

# systemctl stop NetworkManager
# systemctl disable NetworkManager

After disabling NetworkManger, restarting network service succeeded.
