#AzureStack: How to provide internet access to your Tenant VMs
As you are probably already aware, AzureStack went out to public preview last Friday. After you successfully deployed your first VM, you could start a RDP connection simply by clicking on the Connect button.
When you are in your Tenant Virtual Machine, you could see that you don’t have internet access.
The problem is coming from the DNS Resolution which doesn’t work.
Go back to the AzureStack Portal, select the Resource group which your Virtual Machine is part of and click on the Virtual Network icon.
In the Virtual Network blade, DNS Settings,you could see that the DNS Server are configured to Azure DNS Servers.
Click on Custom DNS and set 192.168.100.2 as primary DNS Server. Click on save and restart your tenant Virtual Machines.
I noticed that in some cases, this only works for newly created VMs in this existing Virtual Network and doesn’t work for the existing VMs. So the small trick for the existing VMs is to configure the DNS IP at the Network Card level.
To do this in the Virtual Network blade, under Connected Devices, select your server, click on DNS Server and there configure the DNS server IP address. Finally restart your Virtual Machine.
So my advice will be to first configure the DNS Server settings, before creating your Virtual Machines
