Hello team. I have a Hyperflex Cluster with 12 nodes. The DNS server that we used in the implementation was migrated to the new infrastructure. After a power outage, the cluster failed to start because there was no DNS server available to resolve the host name of each node. I could solve it by restoring a DNS server backup outside the cluster.
Is it possible to change the settings from hostname to IP address?
Yes, you need to have at least 1 DNS and NTP server outside the HX cluster to avoid a dependency loop.
"Is it possible to change the settings from hostname to IP address?" <<< settings of what? DNS server values?
If so, just use command: stcli services dns set --dns x.x.x.x
Hopefully you can set more than one DNS server permanently, with at least one outside the cluster.
Great Kirk J! Thanks a lot.
When I mentioned the DNS, I was talking about to change the FQDN of every node to an IP address. My idea is not utilize an Out of box DNS, when the cluster reloads. This could be possible?
