DNS addresses sbeing dropped when rebooting

Asked by Gary on 2018-10-03

I use Ubuntu 18.4 Desktop GUI to select Network under System/Administration/Network, select the DNS tab, unlock the tab and enter dns address 8.8.8.8.

Everything works fine until I reboot the machine. When the system is up I have to re-enter the dns address.

What am I doing wrong?

run:

echo "nameserver 8.8.8.8" | sudo tee -a /etc/resolvconf/resolv.conf.d/head > /dev/null

It will now set the DNS server to 8.8.8.8 each bootup

Reboot to test
