You maybe have noticed that you can configure DNS servers in your systemd-networkd settings, but these addresses don’t appear in
/etc/resolv.conf. You need to enable/start systemd-resolved, this daemon checks global DNS settings in
/etc/systemd/resolved.conf, DNS settings for each link from systemd-networkd + DNS stuff that comes from a DHCP server and writes everything into
/run/systemd/resolve/resolv.conf. You need to create a symlink to your
/etc/systemd/resolved.conf, then everything works as expected:
root@ci ~ # systemctl enable systemd-resolved
Created symlink from /etc/systemd/system/multi-user.target.wants/systemd-resolved.service to /usr/lib/systemd/system/systemd-resolved.service.
root@ci ~ # systemctl start systemd-resolved
root@ci ~ # systemctl status systemd-resolved
