14.0.0 (Rocky)Red Hat OpenStack Platform 14 (RHOSP 14)No

Note

You need to upload the infoblox_ipam_agent container image to your container image source before performing the following steps. For more information about the container image source, see https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_openstack_platform/13/html-single/director_installation_and_usage/index#configuring-a-container-image-source.

Installing the networking_infoblox Package into the neutron_api Container

To install the networking_infoblox package into the neutron_api container, complete the following steps:

Note

  • You need to run the following commands as a root user. To enter as a root user, run the command $ sudo -i
  • If the neutron_api container is replaced by a new container, then you need to run the following steps on the new container as well.
  1. Enter the following command to download get-pip.py in the neutron_api container:
    $ docker exec -u 0 neutron_api /bin/bash -c 'curl -o /tmp/get-pip.py https://bootstrap.pypa.io/get-pip.py'

    If there is no internet access on the controller, copy the file locally to the controller and run the docker copy command:
    $ docker cp /tmp/get-pip.py neutron_api:/tmp/get-pip.py

  2. Enter the following command to assign execute permission to get-pip.py:
    $ docker exec -u 0 neutron_api /bin/bash -c 'chmod 755 /tmp/get-pip.py'

  3. Enter the following command to install pip in the neutron_api container:
    $ docker exec -u 0 neutron_api /bin/bash -c 'python /tmp/get-pip.py'

  4. Enter the following command to install the networking_infoblox plugin inside the neutron_api container:
    $ docker exec -u 0 neutron_api /bin/bash -c 'pip install --no-cache-dir networking_infoblox==12.0.1'

Creating Infoblox Neutron Database

The Infoblox IPAM Driver for RHOSP uses a number of different Infoblox specific tables to manage the integration. These are created by running the neutron-db-manage after you install the networking_infoblox module.

You can use the following docker command to run the database migration:

$ docker exec  neutron_api /bin/bash -c 'neutron-db-manage upgrade head'

This should be done on one of the controller nodes, assuming all controller nodes share a common database cluster.

Restarting the neutron_api Container

Enter the following commands to restart the neutron_api container:

$ docker stop neutron_api

$ docker start neutron_api

Restarting the nova_compute Container

Enter the following commands to restart the nova_compute container:

$docker stop nova_compute

$docker start nova_compute
