Applications and workloads running in a private cloud environment require name resolution and DHCP services for lookup and IP address assignment. A proper DHCP and DNS infrastructure is required to provide these services. You can configure your private cloud NSX-T to provide DHCP and DNS service or set up a virtual machine (VM) to provide these services in your private cloud environment.
To set up DNS and DHCP services using NSX-T:
Before you begin
Use a virtual machine template or ISO to create a VM.
