Issue chaning DNS settings using netconfig

I'm trying to update my dns servers on opensuse 12.1 after openvpn connection, but netconfig won't do that for me.

Here's how I'm trying to do it [manually now]:

/sbin/netconfig modify -v -i tap0 -s openvpn <<-EOF
And here's the verbose output:

debug: lockfile created (/var/run/ for PID 5530
debug: lockfile created
debug: write new STATE file /var/run/netconfig//tap0/netconfig0
debug: Module order: dns-resolver dns-bind dns-dnsmasq nis ntp-runtime
debug: dns-resolver module called
debug: Static Fallback
debug: Use NetworkManager policy merged settings
debug: exec get_dns_settings: /var/run/netconfig/NetworkManager.netconfig
debug:      get_dns_settings: service 'NetworkManager' => rank '1'
debug:      get_dns_settings: DNS_SEARCHLIST_1=''
debug:      get_dns_settings: DNS_SERVERS_1=''
debug: exit get_dns_settings: /var/run/netconfig/NetworkManager.netconfig
debug: write_resolv_conf: ' ' ' '

debug: set_nisdomainname:  eth0 24
debug: set_nisdomainname: => yes
debug: set_nisdomainname: old[]=, new[24]=
debug: format_yp_conf called with :
debug: Using static fallback
debug: format_static[0] called
debug: No changes for /etc/yp.conf
debug: nis domainname '' is up to date
debug: ntp-runtime Module called
debug: Static Fallback
debug: Use NetworkManager policy merged settings
debug: exec get_ntp_settings: /var/run/netconfig/NetworkManager.netconfig
debug:      get_ntp_settings: NTP_SERVER_LIST=''
debug: exit get_ntp_settings: /var/run/netconfig/NetworkManager.netconfig
I've been trying to find something relevant on the web, but failed to do so. I have no other clue on how to progress with this issue.
Any thoughts? I can't find anything wrong with the call I'm making :/


dns, netconfig, opensuse, openvpn
