Description

Hello,

After the upgrade, the DNS configuration by NWAM of a wireless connection is no longer working:

  • the IP address (DHCP) is still allocated
  • the gateway is correctly identified and can be addressed
  • but /etc/nsswitch.conf presents a 'starting' configuration that comprises:
    hosts: files
    ipnodes: files

Note that the dns/client service is disabled.

Replacing the /etc/nsswitch.conf by the /etc/nwam/loc/Legacy/nsswitch.conf fixes the issue. Legacy/nsswitch.conf comprises the following statements:

#hosts:      files # Commented out by DHCP
hosts: files dns # Added by DHCP
#ipnodes: files # Commented out by DHCP
ipnodes: files dns # Added by DHCP

It seems that the order (legacy - current configuration) is reverted ...
