resolvconf Cookbook

This cookbook maintains /etc/resolv.conf using the resolvconf package, which is installed by default on Debian/Ubuntu.


A system that supports resolvconf.

  • Ubuntu >= 10.04
  • Debian >= 6.0

Furthermore you need to add the following line to your metadata.rb

depends 'resolvconf'


<table> <tr> <th>Key</th> <th>Type</th> <th>Description</th> <th>Default</th> </tr> <tr> <td><tt>['resolvconf']['nameserver']</tt></td> <td>String, Array</td> <td>Nameserver(s) to use</td> <td>OpenDNS Nameservers: <tt>[ '', '' ]</tt></td> </tr> <tr> <td><tt>['resolvconf']['search']</tt></td> <td>String, Array</td> <td>Domain(s) to add to search</td> <td><tt>node['domain']</tt></td> </tr> <tr> <td><tt>['resolvconf']['options']</tt></td> <td>String, Array</td> <td>Other options, e.g. 'rotate'</td> <td><tt>[]</tt></td> </tr>

<tr> <td><tt>['resolvconf']['head']</tt></td> <td>String, Array</td> <td>String(s) to be placed at the top of /etc/resolv.conf, typically a warning</td> <td><tt>[ '# Dynamic resolv.conf(5) file for glibc resolver(3) generated by resolvconf(8)', '# DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE BY HAND -- YOUR CHANGES WILL BE OVERWRITTEN' ]</tt></td> </tr> <tr> <td><tt>['resolvconf']['base']</tt></td> <td>String, Array</td> <td>String(s) to be placed in the of /etc/resolv.conf, typically configuration like nameserver, search, options</td> <td><tt>[]</tt></td> </tr> <tr> <td><tt>['resolvconf']['tail']</tt></td> <td>String, Array</td> <td>String(s) to be placed at the bottom of /etc/resolv.conf</td> <td><tt>[]</tt></td> </tr>

<tr> <td><tt>['resolvconf']['clear-dns-from-interfaces']</tt></td> <td>Boolean</td> <td>Remove dns-* settings from /etc/network/interfaces, as they might interferre with the configured settings</td> <td><tt>true</tt></td> </tr> </table>



The LWRP basically supports all options that can be set via attributes, and uses the same defaults. It will do the following

  • It will create the necessary files in /etc/resolvconf/resolv.conf.d/
  • Remove dns-* lines from /etc/network/interfaces (unless clear_dns_form_interfaces is specified)
  • Run 'resolvconf -u'


resolvconf 'default'
resolvconf 'custom' do
  nameserver ''
  search     ''
  options    'rotate'

  head       "# Don't touch this configuration file!"
  base       "# Will be added after nameserver, search, options config items"
  tail       "# This goes to the end of the file."

  # do not touch my interface configuration plz!
  clear_dns_from_interfaces false



Installs the resolvconf package.


Includes resolvconf::install, then configures the node using the specified attributes / defaults.
