Bug Description

STEPS:
1. Put the install media into the device
2. Boot it
3. Hit a key to get to the selection menu
4. Hit F4
5. Select OEM mode
6. Complete the install
7. Cd is ejected
8. Tap enter to reboot
9. On reboot select your wifi network
10. Add the wifi password
11. Select the Prepare for shipping to end user
12. Reboot the machine
13. Boot into the user setup mode
14. Note there is a wifi connection to your network

EXPECTED:
I wouldn't expect the wifi connection to be remembered from the OEM session

ACTUAL:
The wifi connects automatically to the local wifi as it was setup in oem mode.

description: updated

This is unlikely to be new, since the network configs are saved system-wide by default, OEM setup requires wiping /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections.

In progress/High. I'm testing my changes now to make sure I didn't forget something along the way.

This bug was fixed in the package ubiquity - 2.21.12

---------------
ubiquity (2.21.12) vivid; urgency=medium

  * Clean up after NetworkManager's system-connections files in prepare job
    for oem-config: we shouldn't keep wireless connections (or any, really)
    on the system that may have been setup by OEM, unless done *after* running
    oem-prepare. (LP: #1418105)
  * Force the GTK-based installer to be visible when starting, this should fix
    it being running but hidden on some Xubuntu only-ubiquity installs, which
    meant users had to Alt-Tab to it and switch language for it to appear.
    (LP: #1423161)
  * Automatic update of included source packages: grub-installer
    1.78ubuntu25.
