Subject RE: DNS settings
Date Tue, 05 Mar 2013 22:35:07 GMT

I was trying to access the virtual router, and that worked, thank you! 

Well.... i'm still back to square one I guess, the virtual router logs aren't really telling
me why my guest VMs are not resolving hostnames on the network. Any suggestions on where to
look in the virtual router VM to find out?

Are you trying to access SSVM?

When SSVM powers up, it runs bunch of scripts, one of them injects the public ssh key pair.

To access  your ssh VM, your login with

ssh -i /var/lib/cloud/management/.ssh/id_rsa -p 3922  <ip_of_ssvm>

If you have multiple IPs assigned, try each one.
