My /etc/resolv.conf:

### /etc/resolv.conf file autogenerated by netconfig!
#
# Before you change this file manually, consider to define the
# static DNS configuration using the following variables in the
# /etc/sysconfig/network/config file:
#     NETCONFIG_DNS_STATIC_SEARCHLIST
#     NETCONFIG_DNS_STATIC_SERVERS
#     NETCONFIG_DNS_FORWARDER
# or disable DNS configuration updates via netconfig by setting:
#     NETCONFIG_DNS_POLICY=''
#
# See also the netconfig(8) manual page and other documentation.
#
# Note: Manual change of this file disables netconfig too, but
# may get lost when this file contains comments or empty lines
# only, the netconfig settings are same with settings in this
# file and in case of a "netconfig update -f" call.
#
### Please remove (at least) this line when you modify the file!

I checked the value of NETCONFIG_DNS_STATIC_SERVERS in /etc/sysconfig/network/config and that is correct.

In yast lan, Hostname/DNS, Modify DNS Configuration, it says "Only Manually" and the DNS servers are listed under "Name Servers and Domain Search List" Here is my /etc/sysconfig/network/config:

## Type:        yesno
## Default:     yes
# sometimes we want some script to be executed after an interface has been
# brought up, or before an interface is taken down.

# interface is down and not before.

# If ifup should check if an ip address is already in use, set this to yes.
# Make sure that packet sockets (CONFIG_PACKET) are supported in the kernel,

CHECK_DUPLICATE_IP="no"

# WARNING: Be aware that this may terminate applications which use

  • please post /etc/sysconfig/network/config. also try to fix dns resolution using yast. – Chaoxiang N Jan 8 '19 at 15:46

NETCONFIG_DNS_POLICY is set to a blank string, which is explicitly telling netconfig not to mess with your resolv.conf which is otherwise empty. You need to read the netconfig(8) manpage to determine what policy you want it to use. Alternatively, add the line:

nameserver 8.8.8.8

to the bottom of resolv.conf until you figure out what you want netconfig to do.
