My company uses a managed instance of OpenStack. I am NOT an administrator on this instance. There is functionality that OpenStack offers behind the enable-ml2-dns configuration options, this is set in the ml2_conf.ini.

In order to enable internal DNS resolution, the user must set the enable-ml2-dns to True. The default value is False in order to provide backwards compatibility with existing deployments.

Is it possible to find out this setting without being an administrator?

I don't think this is possible. The *.ini files are usually only configured by the cloud operators.
