Ticket #6540 (closed defect: duplicate)
provided DHCP information wrong after update of network config on host during runtime
|Reported by:||Don||Owned by:|
Description (last modified by frank) (diff)
The nameservers provided through the DHCP-Server of VirtualBox don't update if the host DNS configuration changes during runtime of the guest.
In other words: On startup the guest gets the current nameservers as expected. Now the nameservers on the host change (after startup of the guest). If I attempt to update the nameservers using dhclient it will receive the old nameservers.
Such changes on the host might occur when a VPN connection is established, to name one example.
The closure and reopening of the guest refreshes the data. Rebooting doesn't suffice.
