IoT Edge Computer not using DNS servers

Hello, All!

We recently started testing one of the IoT Edge Computers, and are having some trouble regarding DNS.

It is properly connected to our network and receiving the DNS servers through DHCP per the WebUI.

However when trying to use ping, nslookup, or any other communications relying on DNS, it isn’t using those servers. Upon looking at /etc/resolv.conf, it shows only as a name server.

Is there a configuration option to use the DNS servers provided by DHCP?

Update -

I was able to resolve this issue by removing the package that runs the internal DNS server for OpenWRT.

opkg remove dnsmasq
