Retain is having problems after we changed DNS servers.


There are two ways to change DNS on Linux:

Computer/YaST/Network Setting (search with filter if you can’t see it)
In the Hostname/DNS tab you can change it.

change the /etc/resolv.conf
so the item nameserver nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn points to where you want.

This is set in the Control Panel.

  • Click on Start/Control Panel
  • Then click Network and Internet/Network and Sharing Center
  • Click on Change adapter settings on the left
  • Right-click on Local Area Connection and select Properties
  • Click once on Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPc4) and then Properties
  • Click on the Use the following DNS server addresses: and enter the ones desired.
  • Click OK to finish.
