View Full Version : [ubuntu] how to change dns in 8.10?
December 6th, 2008, 09:21 PM
I just upgraded to 8.10 from 8.04. During the upgrade my dns settings were lost. I like to use open dns but can not seem to figure out how to change the settings!
Can anyone help me?
Is there a network manager function like in 8.04?

Just edit /etc/resolv.conf and add your DNS entries back in.
For openDNS, use:

Thanks for the help. It's working now.
Question - in /etc/resolv.conf I have the openDNS name servers as well as what is probably my ISPs name server (Rogers)
Should I delete that one or just leave it there?

I tried adding to /etc/resolv.conf but on next reboot my openDNS settings are gone.
I've recently upgraded from 8.04 to 8.10 and noticed the admin GUI to alter DNS settings isn't present? (network manager). Weird. Anyway, in 8.04 I updated /etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf and appended this line:-
prepend domain-name-servers 22.214.171.124,126.96.36.199;
Will do that now with 8.10 me thinks ;)
