The Configuration Guide for the Infoblox IPAM Driver for OpenStack Neutron describes additional options for configuring the Infoblox side of the OpenStack Neutron and Infoblox Grids integration. The configuration options for Neutron and Nova, as well as the most common Infoblox configuration options, are described in the Installing Infoblox IPAM Driver for Red Hat Openstack Platform (RHOSP).
Infoblox recommends that you install the Cloud Network Automation license on your Grid before configuring the Infoblox IPAM Driver and using the
create_ea_defs.py script to define Extensible Attributes (EAs). If you install the Cloud Network Automation license after running the
create_ea_defs.py script, you might notice the following error message in the infoblox.log: “Hellfire initialization failed with Failed to initialize cloud-specific EAs.” Please note that this error does not affect any functionality in your Grid or IPAM Driver.
The configuration options should be set on the Grid Master using EAs. You can also pre-define mappings for OpenStack entities; those EAs will be set on the specific network view in Infoblox NIOS. This is discussed in more detail below.
Configuring additional options of the Infoblox IPAM Driver for OpenStack Neutron includes the following:
