Description of problem:

NetworkManager gives a facility to enter custom dns now - which is great, but it
actually uses dns given by dhcp server (don't know why).

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

latest from Fedora 9 updates

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. create a new wifi profile
2. set static IP, ie., netmask, gate
3. set custom dns to,
4. connect to the network
5. check connection information
Actual results:

Static IP - fine, works (finally!)
Custom DNS - primary is set to (!), secondary is set to - why??

Expected results:

DNS should be set to my custom dns.
Comment 1 Dan Williams 2008-06-02 17:10:24 EDT
The current behavior is to append your custom servers to the list the DHCP
server returns; already in upstream SVN there's an option to ignore what the
DHCP server returns and only use the specified values.  That should hit F9 in an
update quite soon.
Comment 2 Andrea Dell'Amico 2008-06-12 18:31:20 EDT
Something more: networkmanager appends the custom information of *all* the known
connections. It's true for the nameservers list and for the 'search domain' list.
Comment 3 Dan Williams 2008-11-02 17:10:03 EST
Should be working in latest NM updates (svn4022 and later).  Please reopen if it's not.  Thanks!
