dns-nameservers

When I installed 12.04 lts it appears I inadvertently listed a
bad address for 1 of the 2 nameservers. I have googled and
looked in the manual, but I can't find out where the nameservers
are listed. I did add one nameserver to /etc/network/interfaces
and that one does show up on resolve.conf, but another (good)
nameserver also is in resolve.conf as is the bad address.

Can anyone give me a clue where the "default" (ie: not in
/etc/network/interfaces) might be residing

I think you'll find this setting in your
/etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf file.

I think Nathan is right.

And I think you may want to uninstall NetworkManager on the server. If only to prevent weird stuff like this.

There is no /etc/NetworkManager directory.

I have /etc/network
/etc/networks

and lots of other files in /etc, but nothing related to network*
