I have a quick question regarding Network Manager.I have seen an awkward situation whereby NetworkManager is started by default upon the first boot of the RHEL6 OS that just got installed.Therefore the /etc/resolv.conf file seems to be empty.I can disable the NM using chkconfig of course
#chkconfig --list NetworkManager
#service NetworkManager stop
#chkconfig --level 2345 NetworkManager off
But my question is rather what does NM use to configure its dns settings.I have read that it uses dnsmasque or something? Can you elaborate on that a little more ?
I want to turn off NM and use my classic /etc/resolv.conf file but it seems that this will require appending the dns info to the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg files.
