Internal DNS Resolution

Registered by Carl Baldwin on 2014-04-18

Users of an OpenStack cloud would like to look up their instances by name in an
intuitive way using the Domain Name System (DNS). They boot an instance using
Nova and they give that instance an "Instance Name" as it is called in the
Horizon interface. That name is used as the hostname from the perspective of
the operating system running in the instance. It is reasonable to expect some
integration of this name with DNS.
