Can the Hosts file be used to manage IP Addresses For Vault?
Vault customers need to whitelist the POD’s IP ranges to allow connections from within a corporate network. POD instances hosted in AWS use the IP address ranges so Veeva recommends that Vault customers whitelist these ranges, rather than individual IP addresses.
Using a host file to resolve a host instead of DNS causes issues to occur. This is because the actual IP address of the server can be any within the IP range.
