I am diligently navigating through the setup of the media server and followed the instructions for KVM and the static IP with the network bridge. After setting up and several reboots I was not resolving web addresses. I think it stopped after my first few failures to setup a virtual machine but I am unsure if it ever worked because I don't think I had attempted to update. I added the two DNS lines back into the network interfaces file and rebooted the server. I am resolving web addresses now. Have I broken something else? Is this a coincidence after the restart and not related to the DNS lines I added back?
