Description John F. Doe 2011-08-12 07:03:06 UTC
Description of problem: NetworkManager overwrites manual changes to /etc/resolv.conf, i.e.
 - adding DNS suffixes in the search list, which isn't allowed by NetworkManager
 - Working with DHCP server not delivering option 119

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 1:0.8.9997-4.git20110620.fc15

How reproducible: Let's assume domain is example.com, but we have also example.int. If we add "search example.com example.int" (no quotes) and then turn on Network, dhcp option + NM behaviour overwrites all.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. See 'How Reproducible'
Actual results:

Expected results:

Additional info: RFC 3397, paragraph 4, letter [b] says "Where DNS parameters such as the domain searchlist or DNS servers have been manually configured, these parameters SHOULD NOT be overridden by DHCP." Exactly what NM does...

Comment 1 Fedora End Of Life 2012-08-07 16:03:33 UTC
This message is a notice that Fedora 15 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 15. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. At this time, all open bugs with a Fedora 'version'
of '15' have been closed as WONTFIX.

(Please note: Our normal process is to give advanced warning of this
occurring, but we forgot to do that. A thousand apologies.)

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, feel free to reopen
this bug and simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we were unable to fix it before Fedora 15 reached end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on
"Clone This Bug" (top right of this page) and open it against that
version of Fedora.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here:
