I just installed Operator and while it is working ok with the server receiving a dynamic IP from my DHCP server, if I assign Operator a static IP name resolution stops working. I have the correct gateway entered via the Console.

Doing a quick SSH into the box, I noticed that resolve.conf has 127.0.0.1 as the name server and any nslookups fail on the box.

Any ideas?

Hi Andrew,

please configure a DNS server. Go to the 'Network' screen and type the address of your DNS server to the 'Manual DNS servers' field.

Operator runs a DNS caching server, so the system is configured to resolve domains from 127.0.0.1. Configuration of the dns server is in /tmp/pdnsd.conf. Yours will probably be empty.

Thanks. I actually took advantage of your 24/7 phone support (excellent BTW) and got the same advice. Don't know how I missed the DNS option on the page, I just assumed it would default to the Gateway for a static IP.

Thanks
