Hi all,

Im testing RDO with Havana and my current issue preventing me from moving forward is getting a proper DNS service to the cloud instances.

My requirement is that each tenant instance resolves under a subdomain the cloud admin controls.

I.e. for instance dev44 under tenant named QA:

Any of you have such requirement now ?

I think Designate should solve that requirement but it isnt deployed by packstack. Any plans in this direction ?

Designate is not integrated with Openstack(yet)

You can install designate along side your current install, and have this provided, but it may required some extra code to provide the domain name format you would like.

Drop into #openstack-dns on , there is usually a few of us in there that can answer most of your questions
