I am a bit confused now. On both places (/etc/network/interfaces) and in network manager you can specify the DNS. See this - looks like similar: http://askubuntu.com/questions/137037/networkmanager-not-populating-resolv-conf I think you should keep information only at one place. I now moved completely to NM since perhaps 1-2 months for similar reasons and do not experience any issues. However I am using dhcp and never tried fixed IPs. About the resolv.conf I think it also depends on how you configure the interface in /etc/network/interfaces. Do you have something like auto eth0 or similar. I recall vague that there was something ifup/down vs. ifconfig up/down related. So perhaps your problem is because of configuration mixing up both. regards PS: In my case I have a custom script I hooked to /etc/network/if-up.d/ including restarting firewall after changing connection etc. This was necessary, after moving to systemd. These directories and their files are honored by NM. It is worth looking into it. Everything works great! Just keep it simple and clean!
