Thanks for the heads up on the docs. I tried running the reconfigure
but there is an error;
update-rc.d: warning: resolvconf stop runlevel arguments (none) do not
match LSB Default-Stop values (0 6)
It did however put the DNS server addresses into my resolv.conf but if I
restart the machine I don't have any DNS resolution until I do an ifdown
and ifup, then it works fine.
Any more insights would be greatly appreciated.
I'm really not sure why you would want this automatic resolvconf in a
server installation. Maybe I should just uninstall it.
