Summary0005259: Anaconda looses nameserver in "/etc/resolv.conf" after package installation part begins
DescriptionI am running into an issue where my Kickstarted CentOS 6.0 systems lose their "nameserver <DNS server>" configuration option in "/etc/resolv.conf" during the installation process. When Anaconda first loads and I perform "cat /etc/resolv.conf" from TTY #2 (ALT + f2) I see it has the correct information (nameserver and search lines are present). Once the package installation part begins, another cat of "/etc/resolv.conf" shows only a "search" line being present and no "nameserver" line. The installation will finish but any POST scripts that require contacting network servers using DNS names fail because no resolver is specified in "/etc/resolv.conf". Even though my DHCP server seems to be working fine something seems to be wrong with anaconda where it is somehow truncating the "/etc/resolv.conf" file. I have found adding "--nameserver=<DNS Server>" to the end of the network command in the Kickstart file as a temporary work around. I'd be happy to provide any information that would help resolving this issue (which may very well be a bug).

Awesome good to know! In the mean time I will keep using the "--nameserver=<DNS server>" workaround
