OVH - Proxmox - Ubuntu 11 - Temporary Failure resolving

edited July 2012 in Help

I recently ordered a dedicated server from OVH (kimsufi actually) with proxmox on it, I have no routing problems with Windows or centos, but with ubuntu and debian I just cant seem to fix it. I configure proxmox the same way I did for Centos and Windows but it keeps saying it has temporary failure resolving. /etc/resolv.conf does have nameservers in them. OVH docs say : "For Debian 6*, the DNS server configuration is done directly in the file /etc/network/interfaces or you find it in this section:
dns-* options are implemented by the resolvconf package, if installed (default)

dns-nameservers # OVH DNS Server dns-search # To quickly fix the hosts on the OVH network"

When I add this to the interfaces.head file it doesn't fix it.

I hope you guys can help me out here, I'm really stuck.

Thanks for reading and your future help. :)

    Did you restart networking after adding it?

    I dont know what went wrong, but after re-imaging it all went fine.
    Sometimes I wonder if OVH just needs some waiting time to route it all.....
