Virtual Machine Manager: cannot resolve guest domain name


Hello,

I've setup a CentOS guest on my Fedora host, I can connect to it via ssh if I give the IP address, but if I give the domain name it doesn't connect.

Quote:
ssh hash@guest1
ssh: Could not resolve hostname guest1: Name or service not known
Can anyone tell me what I didn't do in setting up this guest such that it's name does not resolve from the host, or tell me where I can find the A Record and PTR Record to ensure domain name pingability?

Any assistance appreciated.

thanks, that was no help at all. I know what a dns server is, I want to know what if any differences there are with Virtual Machine Manager and how it resolves the names of its own guests. But here's an idea, in future you can ignore the contents of a question even more and just pointlessly respond to threads with the word "Google" or something clever like that.

I'm sorry I was a little rude but my point was that a virtual machine isn't special and so any DNS settings need to be created in the same way as a real machine. You also provide no information as to how you have set up DNS for the VM so how is anybody suppose to tell you what is wrong with the configuration?

Aye, fair point.
