Anybody experience problems with DNS resolution in Ubuntu 13.04? Ubuntu users are pulling IPs from DHCP (including DNS IP) but DNS doesn't resolve unless we manually change the resolv.conf file. I can see that DHCP sucessfully pulls the correct DNS server IP. Mac and Windows users are not affected.

    Please provide more information by editing the question. Are you using any VPN or something else that is changing the DNS IP. Or is this a one-time setup problem?

  • dpkg-reconfigure resolvconf from @user68186 link, worked for me on 13.04

Yes, dpkg-reconfigure resolvconf resolved my problem with a malfunction DNS. I think my problem originate from using Fortinet SSL VPN client.


I found that I had to manually add the DNS nameserver addresses to resolv.conf. The DHCP linkage to the DNS resolver is not working in Trusty (14.04) on my son's Chrubuntu Acer c720p Chromebook.
