*** This bug is a duplicate of bug 1003842 ***

I reformatted over 14.04 and installed 16.04 as a fresh start.  I use a 
slightly customized server install ISO image that includes my own 
preseed file for automation.  My approach is to start with a bare-bones 
server install on all machines and then install extra packages based on 
the machine's function (ubuntu-desktop on workstations, for instance).  
According to my installation logs, dnsmasq was installed during an 
"apt-get install ubuntu-desktop unity-tweak-tool" on a workstation 
(which of those two packages actually resulted in a dependency on 
dnsmasq I don't know), and on a server it was installed during an 
"apt-get install polipo".

  resolvconf doesn't create the correct /etc/resolv.conf file when
  static IP addresses are used

Status in dnsmasq package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  By default, when installing ubuntu-desktop (and when installing some
  other packages as well), apt will also install dnsmasq as a
  dependency.  When dnsmasq is installed, and static IP addresses are
  used, resolv.conf creates a nearly empty /etc/resolv.conf file.  The
  file only contains entries for localhost and the search domain.  If
  static IP addresses are defined in /etc/network/interfaces, then
  shouldn't those DNS servers should be included in /etc/resolv.conf
  regardless of the presence of dnsmasq?
