Description Daniel Walsh 2006-01-09 09:23:53 EST
Description of problem:

resolv.conf does not pick up my search line from /etc/dhclient.conf.  I end up
with no search or domain line.   So I end up manually editing it.

Not good for usability

Reassigning to NetworkManager maintainer

I know at one time NetworkManager was supposed to notify a running bind process
what the new DNS servers were.  In that case, the DNS server was supposed to be
localhost.  If that's what you're seeing, then it's working.

Right now I'm seeing that /etc/resolv.conf has the normal entries even though
I'm running bind.  I wish I could get it to work the other way (with bind on

Taking ownership.
Comment 4 Denis Leroy 2006-10-19 16:58:34 EDT
Is this bug still occuring ? Is it NetworkManager-vpnc specific or is it a
general NM issue ? Can you attach your dhclient.conf file, and also verify that
it is syntactially correct ? (see /var/log/messages). I'm not even sure you can
supersede the search entries...

If I don't hear from submitter, will close in a week as WORKSFORME.

Seems to work with Standard Network Manager plugged into wire and on the rh-wireless

Definitly broken on NetworkManager-vpnc

rpm -q NetworkManager-vpnc

With vpnc
cat /etc/resolv.conf
# generated by NetworkManager, do not edit!


With just Wireless
cat /etc/resolv.conf
# generated by NetworkManager, do not edit!

Reassigning to vpnc, I don't see how this issue could be caused by n-m-vpnc
Comment 7 Tomas Mraz 2006-12-11 14:31:52 EST
The vpnc doesn't pick the search lines from dhclient.conf because it doesn't use
dhcp at all.

The vpnc's own interface init script (which is probably not in use when vpnc is
called from NetworkManager-vpnc) preserves search lines from the original

So either WONTFIX or back to NetworkManager-vpnc.
