Set a DNS server to allow the management gateway, ESXi hosts, and management VMs to resolve fully-qualified domain names (FQDNs) to IP addresses on the management network.

About this task

Unless you intend to use only static routing, the management network requires a DNS service that can resolve IP addresses on both sides of the management gateway to VM FQDNs. You must specify the IP address of at least one DNS server when you configure the management gateway. If you specify an optional backup DNS server, be sure that both servers are configured identically.

Procedure

  1. Log in to the VMC Console at https://vmc.vmware.com.
  2. Click View Details on the SDDC card.
  3. Click Network.
  4. Under Management Gateway, click DNS.
  5. Click Edit and enter the IP addresses for DNS Server 1 and, optionally, DNS Server 2.

    If you specify an optional backup DNS server, be sure that both servers are configured identically.
