could not resolve mirrorlist.centos.org

Hi, folks,

I've got managers on me, I'm rebuilding this system as C 7... and I'm
getting the above. No idea. It pings, but pointing a browser to there
gives me "invalid release".

Anyone else having trouble?

If you want a list of the mirrors, go to:

<https://www.centos.org/download/mirrors/>

If you want to go to <a href="http://mirrorlist.centos.org" title="http://mirrorlist.centos.org">http://mirrorlist.centos.org</a>, then you have to
fill in the parameters that you see in a yum .repo file, e.g.,

<http://mirrorlist.centos.org/?release=7&arch=x86_64&repo=os>

otherwise you do indeed get the "invalid release" response.

I know, it had shut down the NIC-formerly-known-as-eth0. I brought that
up, and all was well.
