    Updates are handled by VS0 and then passed through the VSX software to the Virtual Systems on the Hardware.

    So VS0 should be connected to internet.
    Can we disable this functionality ?
    If VS0 only responsible for update then how we can configure DNS only for VS0

    In fact, you cannot do it any other way. DNS is set on physical content, e.i. at VS0. There is no way to have different DNS settings for other virtual systems
