Description Rohan Dhruva 2008-05-15 09:53:37 UTC
Description of problem:
As I had said in this bug - https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=398351 -
I need to set a custom DNS for my machine. In resolv.conf, I need to add the
line "nameserver". In fedora 8, I did that by creating an appropriate
dhclient.conf file. Using the same file in Fedora 9 doesn't work - the
line doesn't appear in resolv.conf, only I'm attaching my
dhclient.conf file.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create the file /etc/dhclient.conf (attached)
2. Reboot
3. Check, /etc/resolv.conf still not updated with new DNS entries
Actual results:
/etc/resolv.conf is not updated with the proper DNS entry.

Expected results:
/etc/resolv.conf should have first line as 


Additional info:
The attached file worked perfectly in Fedora 8.

Can you try moving your options to a dhclient-eth0.conf using the name of the interface?  NM will honor interface-specific dhclient config files and merge them into the config it actually uses with dhclient.
