Search Domain reverts to "local"

Sep 26, 2019

My PVE 6.2-12 installation insists on reverting the search domain back to "local".

The first time or two, I thought I forgot to set the domain, today was the third or forth time I changed it to the correct domain.

How can I fix this? It's causing trouble in PMG where senders expect to find, instead they find local

my first guess would be that an interface of the PVE is configured to get it's configuration via DHCP - check the journal for messages from dhcpcd

Alternatively maybe you have one of the services which touch the resolv.conf installed and configured (wrongly):
* resolvconf
* network-manager
* systemd-resolved

-> check the logs and the contents of /etc/resolv.conf (usually they give you a hint)

I hope this helps!
