Re: instance dns issue



I reckon this is because dnsmasq is isolated in the dhcp namespace. You can use 
DHCP to push out a specific nameserver:

$ quantum subnet-update sub1 --dns_nameservers

I can't seem to figure out the syntax to pass just one (list=false is not 
working). Or you could use Horizon instead. Anyway the DHCP agent should ensure 
that it is pushed out to the instance's resolv.conf or whatever.
