Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Simple question, but haven't found an answer anywhere, so turning here:

When setting up /etc/network/interfaces do I have to set up the dns-nameservers line both for the inet and the inet6 parts of the configuration separately?

My guess is yes, because the values/IPs for the servers obviously differ. But I'd like to get an authoritative answer, preferably with pointers to the source of whatever the answer turns out to be.
