Set nameserver to

Posted May 9, 2014 3.3k views
I am running bind on my 14.04 droplet. I want the first nameserver to be, then and as backups in case bind is down. I can edit the /etc/network/interfaces and change the line to dns-nameservers After reboot resolve.conf only shows the entry. I can put any other nameservers and it works just not localhost. For example dns-nameservers gives me the correct lines resolve.conf nameserver nameserver nameserver What am I doing wrong?

Because you likely have dnsmasq running locally which then connects to your external DNS servers, at least from what I can understand!
