I just installed a server into a new open collocation facility yesterday. I installed server software today, but during the install I could not connect to any of the Debian mirrors to get software updates. I completed the bare minimum install from the CD.
After rebooting the system, I can ping IP addresses, but I cannot ping host names.
When I try:
ping google.com ping: unknown host google.com
I have resorted to changing the host names in /etc/apt/sources.list to IP addresses, so I can at least update my server, but this is less than ideal.
Has anyone experienced this problem, or knows why this is happening?
