Set graylog server DNS

I am using a Graylog 2.2.2 virtual appliance. How can I permanently set the DNS server? I can set it in resolv.conf temporarily, which gets reset, but can’t figure out the proper way to set it permanently. Thank you.

Bump, I could really use some help with this if anyone can assist. Thank you.


why would the DNS server get reset when they’re configured in the resolv.conf?
Is this file managed by a configuration management tool that constantly overwrites it?
I don’t think you can set this in the graylog config, however what you can do is install a dnsresolver plugin to resolve the IP addresses.

I hope that’s what you meant/intended to do.


The Appliance is only build as a showcase - if you run Graylog in production you should think about building your own and be able to customize the system.

Sorry to hijack this thread. But since I’m running the virtual appliance locally (as a test-environment). Is it possible to setup a TLS connection there as well?
in the graylog.conf I can only see the rest_tls_ settings but not the web_tls settings.
Would I need to add those myself or is this configured somewhere else? I can’t seem to find it how to configure it through graylog-ctl either.

best regards,

please do not hijack …

but you like to read the graylog-ctl documentation and options page.
