I suspect it is the way you are spelling the name of the file. There is no E on the end of "resolv":

/etc/resolv.conf <-- is the correct spelling.

try to use 'tab' button frequently....when you press tab after typing /etc/re , it will show resolv.conf.....there is a possibility to mistake if you try to type the full path ...better adopt to use TAB button on keyboard

If you are not able to find this file, you can just create it and add your dns entries manually. Hope it works. It worked for me in a solaris unix dist.
