Recently installed CentOS 6.4 on a server. I'm not sure if this is something that has to be specifically installed or not, but there is no Network Configuration GUI in Gnome. On other CentOS systems I've seen a Network Configuration window accessible via the System > Administration menu, but it's not there.

I know that I can make all my changes via terminal, but it would be nice to have the GUI. Is this something I can install via yum? If so, what is it called? What do I search for?

A GUI on a server? There's the first problem you need to fix. – Michael Hampton Oct 7 '13 at 22:41
@AWippler I was missing NetworkManager-gnome. Feel free to add that as an actual answer and I'll give you credit. Thanks! – Jake Wilson Oct 7 '13 at 22:42
@MichaelHampton I know. Sorry I'm not pro yet. For some reason our server was defaulting it's nameserver in /etc/resolv.conf to no matter what I did. Installing this NetworkManager-gnome somehow magically fixed the problem. – Jake Wilson Oct 7 '13 at 22:46
