AWS RDS Error- VPC DNS Resolution

Published on
1 mins read

Today I worked on spinning up a new SQL server RDS instance and received an error while launching the instance.

Error: The specified VPC does not support DNS resolution, DNS hostnames, or both.

Turns out the VPC I created did not have DNS Resolution or Hostnames enabled.

_To correct this you need to log into the AWS VPC Management Console

Right click on the VPC and Edit the two DNS options- set to Yes.
