I'd recommend the same treatment for network manager as we used for sendmail
all those years back:
# yum -y remove NetworkManager

And then configure your network the old, verified, stable and trusted way,
by editing the ifcfg files. The whole idea of having something running on a
*server* that can change your networks settings for whatever reason is
horribly wrong.

To answer your question, there exist something called nm-cli, but I found
it to be not of much use.
