Yes, but you should be able to at least add something
to /etc/resolv.conf, even if it will be overwritten at a later point. I
couldn't even do this on Centos 7.3. I spent more time getting
resolv.conf to work the way I wanted it to, than doing what I wanted
to test ;-)
Yes, add it to the /etc/network/interfaces and Ubuntu does the rest.
Once I discovered this worked, it went much easier and worked like a
charm, as they say . . however, they are.
