Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1277253
resolv.conf overwritten by dhclient-script despite PEERDNS="no" in ifcfg file with network.service
Last modified: 2015-11-05 17:24:18 EST
I upgraded my F21 boxes to F23 this weekend. While doing so I noticed an odd problem on one, which was still running network.service. It has this in its ifcfg-eth0 file:
but on boot and whenever restarting network.service , resolv.conf would be overwritten by dhclient-script (it was definitely dhclient-script doing it - the file had the 'generated by /usr/sbin/dhclient-script' text added). PEERDNS="no" is explicitly supposed to prevent that. I switched from network.service to NetworkManager.service and this stopped happening, with NM it works fine.
I'm filing against dhcp at Lukáš Nykrýn's suggestion - https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1093777#c11 - but it's also possible that the issue may really be in the network scripts somewhere.
CCing Lukáš for the initscripts stuff.
Thanks. Few months ago I've removed  dhclient's dependency on initscripts by copying necessary functions from /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/network-functions and /etc/rc.d/init.d/functions into dhclient-script. I was not sure about source_config(), but now I see we need it because of the PEERDNS.
Should be fixed with .
