why doesn't dnsmasq update metastore with hostname

asked 2013-10-08 08:33:24 -0500

Hi, I have an Openstack Havana install with Neutron networking. When my instances boot, they receive an IP. If I do a nslookup on the IP I can see dnsmasq also generated a hostname.

i.e. instance with ip


Server: Address: name = host-10-0-0-2.bfsopenstack.

Other instances can use ' host-10-0-0-2.bfsopenstack' to contact this host, but if I look in the meta-store: curl (

I get testmachine.novalocal

This means my machines hostname is setup in correctly as cloud-init reads from the metastore. Is this a bug, or a feature not implemented ?

host-10-0-0-2.bfsopenstack is from neutron, testmachine.novalocal is from nova metadata. now nova does not pass neutron the vm name.

I think we can file a bug for it.
