How can we improve Azure Networking?

update DNS settings for VNET without restart of the VMs to take effect

Current when we try to update the DNS settings in the VNET or NIC, it required the VMs to be restarted to take effect. But when there are a large amount of VMs under the VNET, it would be a hard work to do so.
If this process could be simplify so that the restarted of VM will be no longer required, it would be a good news.

    Why is this still an issue? Come on Microsoft, this is really causing issues, and it has been known by you for over two years. Wake up and get it fixed. At least provide an update to your userbase....

    Hi,

    I can confirm this.
    We need to update our secondary DNS configuration on about 200 VMs, and i just realized like you that a restart is needed.

    It would be nice to see Microsoft working on this.

    besides it's really annoying restarting +100 vms after changing the dns values on the vnet, also sometimes the new values are not been acquired after the vms are restarted so, you'll probably end up doing several restarts of your vms. how adorable is this?

    Hi,
    Is there any update for this? We will be changing our internal DNS servers, and dont fancy rebooting 100+ servers to get the new DNS address from the Vnet.

    It is not practical every time making just a small change to update the DNS setting in the VNET or NIC and it required the VMs to be restarted in order to take effect. It would be great if Microsoft can simplify the process.
