/etc/resolv.conf search ignored

Post by InvisibleGhost » Tue Apr 10, 2018 4:24 pm

Hi guys,

Im using Linx Mint Cinnamon 18.3.

I have the following issue: My university provides a Windows share. You can use it within the university intranet and should be able to use it via VPN.
If I am at the university the mounting is not a problem and works fine via

Code: Select all

gvfs-mount smb://fs23/lehrveranstaltungen
.

If I use the VPN (that definitely works, I can access blocked websites) and try to

Code: Select all

gvfs-mount smb://fs23/lehrveranstaltungen
, I get the error that the argument is invalid. But on the other hand everything works fine, if I give the full domain

Code: Select all

gvfs-mount smb://fs23.hpi.uni-potsdam.de/lehrveranstaltungen
.
For me that looks like a name resolving issue.

The /etc/resolv.conf looks like

Code: Select all

# 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
nameserver 127.0.1.1
search fritz.box
if the VPN is deactivated and as follows if it is activated

Code: Select all

# 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
nameserver 10.10.10.11
nameserver 10.10.10.12
nameserver 127.0.1.1
search hpi.uni-potsdam.de;hpi.de fritz.box
.
So the domain is obviously there but seems to be ignored....


Does anybody have a clue what the problem is?
Best regards
