Are you using dhcp to get an IP address on that server? 

Every time dhcpcd gets an IP address it overwrites the resolv.conf.  So 
I think that's why it's changing every time you reboot. dhcpcd can be 
run with the -R option to prevent it from overwriting resolv.conf (check 
out the dhcpcd man page).   I'm not sure where you'd specify that as i 
don't use FC.  But it's probably easier to just give that machine a 
static IP.
