I recently setup a Samba server with a fixed IP and had problems with
resolv.conf being overwritten. I removed resolvconf and that is where
my problems really started.

It seems that you cannot create a new /etc/resolv.conf (well, I
couldn't). I ended up recursively coping everything in /etc to /etc1
I then created /etc1/resolv.conf and then copied /etc1 over /etc. This
worked and survived a reboot. I am sure that there must be a better
way to do this, but I couldn't easily find one and I was just testing
something. YMMV
