This KB provides technical details on how the CMDB and Infoblox are integrated to maintain accurate relationships in the CMDB for DNS entries that are made directly in Infoblox.
DNS changes made in Infoblox are automatically synchronized via a scheduled task with the Configuration Management Database (CMDB) every morning for the previous day’s activity in Infoblox.
The following DNS Infoblox changes are synchronized:
- DNS Created/Modified/Deleted
- Host Records Created/Modified/Deleted
- CNAME Created/Modified/Deleted
IP Addresses that are currently set to ‘Unused’ will be updated to ‘Operational’ once they are related to a new DNS entry.
Note: IP addresses in the CMDB are manually created and updated by Hostmaster. See KB #[Link for document 22833 is unavailable at this time.]
Questions regarding IP or DNS Configuration Items in the CMDB can be directed to email@example.com
If you are interested doing your DNS updates in Infoblox, you can reach out to the Infoblox team at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
