Bug Description

We need to add an automated version of network_info for server testing. Currently, the manual test is skipped on servers (and in other situations where checkbox is run automatically). While the test itself is questionable in a testing standpoint, from an informational point of view, it's worth having the data.

I'm thinking a script that just gathers info on available devices and stores it, attaching the data like we do with other items. It's conceivable we could make it a local job and ignore it as an actual test case (but perhaps leave the manual version in place for instances where it's warranted.

Isn't this just a bit like the bluetooth detect test and the xorg version graphics tests? I say just create a shell version of the test and use that in certification scenarios and the manual one for Ubuntu Friendly?

Essentially, yes. I'm fine with that, and actually that was what I was
envisioning when I filed this initially. We have no need for this as a
manual test, but for UF purposes it's probably pretty good.

Also, to make sure this is not overlooked:

Once the test is written and working, appropriate whitelists need to be
updated to use the new automated version.
