Subject RE: Strange issue with DNS and VMs.

Thanks Marc -

This manifested because of a mistake I made in creating and removing VMs using the API interface.
I was able to resolve it by cleaning up the /etc/hosts file on the virtual router which hadn't
been properly cleaned when the VM was removed because I had manually marked the VMs removed
in the database due to the issues I had created.

Maybe dnsmasq is not deleting old reference? If so, there would be two A
records and thus, DNS performs roundrobin...
