 +//​Warning://​ when enabled NM profiles are the authoritative ones and IWD's ''/​var/​lib/​iwd''​ files can get overwritten any time.
 +
 +//​Warning://​ setting connection properties not supported by IWD will make the conversion fail.  For example the nm-connection-editor'​s //All users may connect to this network// option must be checked (in gnome-control-center/​gnome-shell it is named //Make available to other users//), connections can not be user-owned with IWD.

 +//​Warning://​ 802.1X (EAP) network configurations often reference certificate and user private key files (usually ''​.pem''​). ​ NM may be allowed to access the whole filesystem but IWD's [[https://​git.kernel.org/​pub/​scm/​network/​wireless/​iwd.git/​tree/​src/​iwd.service.in|default systemd unit file]] sets ''​ProtectHome=yes''​ which would cause connections to fail when trying to access certificate files in user home directories. ​ If you intend to use ''​iwd-config-path''​ (**note distro maintainers**) make sure that NM and IWD have the same level of filesystem access, in their systemd unit files or otherwise.
