Is it possible to perform the initial configuration of VxRail without DNS?

Hello Experts.

The customer states that they do not have NTP and DNS servers.

Is it possible to perform the initial deployment of VxRail with just IP addresses, without a DNS server?

Hello guamluv,

You need a DNS to do the install. You can find the following information on page 16 of the PDF document listed in the link.

“Domain Naming Services (DNS) is required to deploy the VxRail cluster and for ongoing operations. You can choose a DNS service internal to VxRail, or use a DNS service in your data center.”

Here is also a link to some other guides that maybe of assistance when installing your VxRail system.
