Networking / Re: cant resolve LAN hosts (SOLVED)
« on: March 30, 2019, 11:50:21 pm »
@PCNetSpec Your reply remineded me that I had actually added entries to my host file. That's why I was able to ping and not because it was reading my resolv.conf file. Apparently I did not fix it. LOL. As a test just now,  I commented them out and couldn't ping by hostname again. *facepalm

Anyway, I restarted the resolve service and uncommented my host entries. and its working fine like that. so I'll leave it alone for now.

@VinDSL - I had never heard of stub dns stuff before, and the resolve service is new to me, I need to do some reading on it. Thanks for those links! Yes, I'm actually used to always using resolv.conf. All our machines at work, and mine at home, have NetworkManager disabled, and I manually setup the network files, (interfaces on deb, and ifcfg- on centos) and manually edit resolv.conf. Its the way I was taught by my mentor. Maybe its old school, but I'm just used to it. Hey, at least I'm sure you learned a lot in that process of the reverse engineering! =)

@PCNetSpec You're welcome. Hope it can help someone reading this!  8)

Ok I was able to fix it. Not sure if its a true fix or a workaround but all seems ok right now.

I was comparing systemctl services against my other machines and noticed systemd-resolved.service was inactive on my Debian systems and was running on Peppermint. So I stop/disabled it and manually configured resolv.conf with my dns server and bam! I can ping local hostnames again! and it survived reboot.

This machine unable to ping/ssh to local hosts by hostname (works fine via IP). All my other machines can ping local hostnames normally. In the Network Manager gui, I have my dns server in there but doesn't seem to be working.

This is what I'm getting:

Code: [Select]
root@myserver:~# ping dsnas
PING dsnas(localhost (::1)) 56 data bytes
64 bytes from localhost (::1): icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=0.059 ms
64 bytes from localhost (::1): icmp_seq=2 ttl=64 time=0.087 ms

Code: [Select]
root@myserver:~# cat /etc/resolv.conf 
# This file is managed by man:systemd-resolved(8). Do not edit.
# This is a dynamic resolv.conf file for connecting local clients to the
# internal DNS stub resolver of systemd-resolved. This file lists all
# configured search domains.
# Run "systemd-resolve --status" to see details about the uplink DNS servers
# currently in use.
# Third party programs must not access this file directly, but only through the
# symlink at /etc/resolv.conf. To manage man:resolv.conf(5) in a different way,
# replace this symlink by a static file or a different symlink.
# See man:systemd-resolved.service(8) for details about the supported modes of
# operation for /etc/resolv.conf.

options edns0
search localhost

I see that it says for nameserver, but I'm not sure where it's pulling that from.

On other Distros/DE's I've used, there is usually a shortcut to home, trash, mounted drives, etc. on the desktop. I dont see this on mine. Maybe there is a way to enable this, but I couldn't find it.

Thanks. That worked perfectly.

How do I mark as solved?

Thanks, I'll try that here in a bit.

My wife and I share this computer. When my  screen locks, there is no way for my  wife to login. I have to log in my session, click switch user, and then she can log in. Is there a way to enable this from the lock screen?

Hello everyone. Just installed this OS. seems pretty good so far. I work in IT as a Jr Sys Admin in Linux. I mainly use debian and centos for our servers. I've been using Debian or Mint for my home desktop for years and would like to try something new. I do have a question about using a particular feature of this OS, but I'll find another section of the forum.
