I am having problems getting my domain name set correctly on CentOS 6. My resolv.conf looks like this:
nameserver 22.214.171.124 nameserver 126.96.36.199 nameserver 188.8.131.52 # Generated by NetworkManager domain andyshinn.as search vcolo.andyshinn.as
I have a single eth0 interface with the following configuration:
DEVICE=eth0 BOOTPROTO=none NM_CONTROLLED=yes ONBOOT=yes TYPE=Ethernet HWADDR=00:0c:29:3b:2a:70 IPADDR=192.168.50.6 NETMASK=255.255.255.0 DNS2=184.108.40.206 GATEWAY=192.168.50.1 DNS1=220.127.116.11 IPV6INIT=no USERCTL=no
Hosts file for reference also:
127.0.0.1 localhost localhost.localdomain localhost4 localhost4.localdomain4 ::1 localhost localhost.localdomain localhost6 localhost6.localdomain6 192.168.50.6 myvm myvm.vcolo.andyshinn.as
I am trying to change the domain to
vcolo.andyshinn.as. But after reboot, it reverts to
andyshinn.as. By the inline comment, I can see it is generated by NetworkManager. However,
system-config-network-tui doesn't have anything about the domain name (only the search path).
fgrep -r 'andyshinn.as' /etc/* only brings up
/etc/sysconfig/networking/profiles/default/resolv.conf as another choice to edit. But I have tried editing this file also with the same results. This is a virtual machine running in VMware Workstation. But I have the DHCP server disabled for the VMnet interface that the VM is using.
Rather than just blindly disable NetworkManager (which seems to be the answer for most NetworkManager related issues), I would like to understand more about how it works and saves configuration. So how is my system ending up with
andyshinn.as as the domain name and what needs to be updated to set it to
