DHCP on VMware does not resolve domain correctly

Dhcp is not resolving the domain of the computer correctly. I am running the Vmware image in NAT mode. Is there a way of overriding the domain in the dhclient.conf file? I can edit my resolv.conf file and put:

search mydomain

and it works correctly until the dhcp daemon runs again.

You can find the VMware dhcpd.conf, it should be in a directory called vmnet8. You can edit that file and change the domain name, then restart VMware.
