Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 191382
NetworkManager doesn't set search in resolv.conf for vpnc
Last modified: 2008-05-06 11:53:36 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #146389 +++
Description of problem:
NM doesn't create the resolv.conf with a search directive so non-FQDNs don't
work. This is quite annoying. Whatever fix was made it does not work for vpnc.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. connect to a vpnc network and get a dhcp address
2. Look into /etc/resolv.conf No search line
Actual Results: NM creates a resolv.conf that doesn't have the search
domain returned by the DHCP server.
We should have a place to specify those env variables that are used in the
creation of resolv.conf, perhaps in a per-connection basis
Are you sure your VPN concentrator is returning information about the domain
name? It's passed to the script in the CISCO_DEF_DOMAIN environment variable.
Sometimes administrators don't set this. I think the fix here is to add a
Default Domain option to the vpnc config options.
I am adding Dong Hu, our system administrator, so that he can tell you if we
have this option set or not.
