Don’t run DNS as a virtual machine

OK, so I’m not saying not to run DNS as a virtual machine, just don’t run the DNS server for your VMware ESX cluster as a virtual machine on that cluster.  Without DNS most/many components of VMware ESX clusters can not work…and then you have a chicken and egg problem.  So if you’re going to run DNS as a virtual machine on the ESX cluster, just make sure you have another DNS server somewhere that is also running DNS that your ESX servers are pointed at…or use host files on the ESX servers.
