Re: instance dns issue


I am assuming that you have a DNS externally and you want the instances to
use that DNS. If this is the requirement then
you will have to add dnsmasq_dns_server= "external DNS IP" in your
/etc/quantum/dhcp_agent.ini.Now your launched instances(VM's) can use
external DNS through quantum dnsmasq.

Please let us know if you have some other requirement.
