Thanks. With that clue, I found this more complete answer:


So the settings are in the same place but the scripts that parse them are 
gone or not executed by the new system, including *-local. Anything in the 
network-scripts RPM is gone. nmcli and friends replace that.

The "network" systemd unit is replaced with the NetworkManager unit when 
starting/stopping the whole network system. More about that here:
