Ubuntu Server manually set DNS


Hey LQ,

Quick question here. I have a ubuntu server up and running with a static IP address, no issues there. The problem I'm having is that whenever I reboot the machine it seems to lose it's DNS settings. I can set the DNS settings manually by doing a sudo nano /etc/resolv.conf and manually adding in "nameserver 192.168.1.254" and then DNS begins to work, but for some reason I lose this configuration upon reboot.

How do I get around this?

What have you got in your /etc/network/interfaces file?

Any DNS info in there?

Hey thanks for chiming in. I've actually managed to get the DNS settings to stick. Turns out you don't set the dns server manually in /etc/resolv.conf anymore (at least not in Ubuntu Server). You set it in the /etc/network/interfaces script. So it's all working now
