appears NetworkManager is pretty aggressive...

# rpm -q --info NetworkManager
Name : NetworkManager Relocations: (not
relocatable)
Version : 0.7.0 Vendor: Fedora Project
Release : 0.5.svn3030.fc8 Build Date: Fri 26 Oct 2007
10:23:31 PM MST
Install Date: Mon 12 Nov 2007 02:21:02 PM MST Build Host:
xenbuilder4.fedora.phx.redhat.com
Group : System Environment/Base Source RPM:
NetworkManager-0.7.0-0.5.svn3030.fc8.src.rpm
Size : 2315518 License: GPLv2+
Signature : DSA/SHA1, Sat 27 Oct 2007 06:20:47 AM MST, Key ID
b44269d04f2a6fd2
Packager : Fedora Project
URL : http://www.gnome.org/projects/NetworkManager/
Summary : Network connection manager and user applications
Description :
NetworkManager attempts to keep an active network connection available
at all
times. It is intended only for the desktop use-case, and is not
intended for
usage on servers. The point of NetworkManager is to make networking
configuration and setup as painless and automatic as possible. If using
DHCP,
NetworkManager is _intended_ to replace default routes, obtain IP
addresses
from a DHCP server, and change nameservers whenever it sees fit.

After you disable and stop NetworkManager & Dispatcher, simply do

service network restart

and I would think that the manual settings should take effect

Hi again Daniel B. Thurman!

If you use Gnome:

System > Administration > Services -- Unselect NetworkManager -
Select Network (about 2/3 down the line) and save your changes.

Then

System > Administration > Network -- In the Devices Tab - Select eth0
and Edit and set up the static address - In the DNS Tab - Setup the
servers and the search path and save the changes.

Have Fun!

Tod

I am having one heckuva time trying to get the resolver
to find make nameservers. I noticed that when I edited
/etc/resolv.conf, seems to get wiped out and I had to
re-enter the configurations.

This time, restarting the network, it seems to remain,
but nslookup fails to find the default domain and fails
to display it, and also fails to resolve any entries
such as orion.cdkkt.com.

What can I do at this point?

I am able to, however, to access my local systems but
using hard IP addresses. By web-browser does find my
system websites with these IPs but fails to resolve
FQDN.

Help!!!!!

Ok, NetworkManager and Network was both running (somehow)
and I have shutdown (and disabled) NetworkManager. I am
now able to reach my local network.

The problem now is that my resolver is not working as explained
in another post but to recap -

I noticed that my resolv.conf got wiped out having previously
set it up, and I re-entered the information, restarted network
and resolv.conf seems to remain unchanged.

But nslookup still fails to locate cdkkt.com domain nor does
are the nameservers found nor are host entries resolved.

Help!

Ok, I did what you asked and it worked. There was definately
a conflict with NetworkManager and Network services and now
that NetworkManager is disabled, the network restarted, I am
able to at least reach my local systems but at this point,
my resolvers are not working as explained in my previous
replies to Craig White.

Thanks Tod!

yeah - dns issues

from your output on your Windows computer, you stated that it used...

>> DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . : 10.1.0.100
>> 10.1.0.5

and thus those same addresses ***should*** work (perhaps invert them and
put 10.1.0.5 on top)

so contents of /etc/resolv.conf should be...

search cdkkt.com
nameserver 10.1.0.5
nameserver 10.1.0.100

changes should take effect immediately (what kind of computer/devices is
10.1.0.5 ? I know your gateway device is 10.1.0.200 so perhaps you can
use that for DNS

Um, I guess I really goofed. I entered "nameservers" and it was
my fault. I corrected to "nameserver" and all is well now! I was
really splitting my hairs...

THANKS FOR ALL YOUR HELP! MUCH APPRECHIATED!
