    [SOLVED]Remove DNS server


    Hello,

    So I have a CentOS 6 machine that had had bind installed and configured so that it was the main DNS server for our network. We decided to put in a new router etc and now the new router is doing the DNS instead of this machine, but this machine is still trying to act like a DNS server.

    I removed bind using yum but have yet to figure out how to make it stop thinking that it is the DNS server for the system.

    Where would I to try and figure out how to make it look to the router for its DNS info?

    Look in /etc/resolv.conf
    and change the nameserver line.

    Be aware though, that this file *could* be managed and automatically created with data from a dhcp server.
    If so, then modify the dhcp server config.
    You must always face the curtain with a bow.

    Turned off Network Manager and set the DNS via the resolv.conf

    Worked beautifully
