    The dns servers on my vps are down so ive been told to use the opendns ones.

    Easy right, edit resolv.conf. I do that, reboot.. the files changed back.

    So i edit dhclient.conf and add

    supersede (also tried prepend) domain-name-servers xx,xx;

    Reboot, its changed back :(

    so i go into /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts and edit the two files vnet0 and vnet0:0 (2 ip's) and add PEERDNS=no.

    Reboot, resolv.conf and the two files ive edited have changed back to orginal.

    Im pulling my hair out since i cant resolve anything to send emails etc, and its starting to feel alot like groundhog day.

    Manually edit /etc/resolv.conf and then chatter +i /etc/resolv.conf

    Makes it unchangable, even by root, unless you chatter -i /etc/resolv.conf

    Might also want to think about installing bind as a caching only nameserver, then you can just reference localhost.

     sudo cat /etc/resolv.conf
    #search lan

    This is normal if your server is a vserver based on openvz or virtuozzo. You have to ask your provider to change the dns servers in the virtualisation software.
