I have deployed with virtualbox vm an all in one openstack rocky version. I have deployed a wordpress instance via heat template. Everything is ok (I can ping/ssh to the instance), but it is not software provisioned because it does not resolve dns names. I can ping for instance but it does not resolve The instance is deployed in a private network with dns-nameserver value Any ideas about this?

What’s the content of /etc/resolv.conf on the instance? Can you see the corresponding dnsmasq options?

/etc/resolv.conf search openstacklocal novalocal nameserver

where can I check dnsmasq options?

I have also made a tcpdump to see the traffic in port 53 and I do not have response from the dns nameserver to the instance.

The command lines of dnsmasq processes on the allinone server tell you which option files to check, but if is already configured, the problem is elsewhere.

The network trace shows connection requests to but no replies? Is something blocking outgoing port 53 traffic?

How about other ports like TCP/80 or TCP/22? Can you connect to the outside world using those?

Network trace shows connection requests to but not responses from there..and the other ports are ok, I can do ping/ssh from the compute node to the instance...From lxc containers I can resolve dns names but from instances not.

Network provider type? Could be something related with this?
