CVMs in a Tencent Cloud VPC support DHCP. The configurable DHCP options include DNS address and domain name. This document describes how to modify the DNS address and domain name of a VPC.
- Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is a LAN network protocol that defines the standard for transferring configuration information to TCP/IP network servers.
- For now, VPCs created before April 1, 2018 do not support DHCP features. If you cannot modify the DNS address and domain name in the console, it means that your VPC does not support these features.
The new configurations will take effect on all CVMs in the VPC.
- The Tencent Cloud default DNS is “220.127.116.11” and “18.104.22.168”. If the default DNS is not used, internal services such as Windows activation, NTP, and YUM will be unavailable.
- DNS supports a maximum of four IP addresses. Separate IPs with commas. Note that certain operating systems might be unable to support four DNS addresses.
