Nice tip. Thanks.
thank you for this!
ive installed a new DNS Server and after i shut down the old one, i couldnt logon with my SSO-Crendentials.
Turned out, that its not enough to change the DNS-Server on the ESX-Hosts.
With your post i was able to change the dns-server settings inside the VCSA and SSO is working now.
