wget - "Temporary failure in name resolution"


Hey,

I'm a server host who is in a spot of trouble with one of my servers. I have looked everywhere for a fix and read many topics on how to fix this and after attempting the same fixes: nothing changed.

So here is my error:
Code:
--2012-08-09 08:12:32--  http://www.damngoodgaming.co.uk/mc.zip
Resolving www.damngoodgaming.co.uk... failed: Temporary failure in name resolution.
wget: unable to resolve host address Ôwww.damngoodgaming.co.ukÔ
------------------------------

This happens if I try to wget anything.

I haved tried changing my DNS servers to 208.67.222.222
208.67.220.220
however when I saved the file (!wq) the write was successful but when I "reboot" the server the file is no longer contains the DNS servers which I had inputted previously.

-------------------------------
Extra info.

OS: Centos 6 (64bit)
Provider: OVH
------------------------------

Thank you for taking the time to read my post.

Kind Regards,
Connor Murray

Hi,

You can edit etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 (assuming eth0 is your nic) and set
Code:
PEERDNS=no

Then take a look at post #3 here.

There is also an ugly hack to use as a last resort. Make /etc/resolv.conf immutable after editing it and adding your favorite nameservers.
Code:
chattr +i /etc/resolv.conf
