Hello all,

 

Im trying to figure it out if i can allow the PTR creation while importing the .csv file with A Records to a zone in Infoblox.

 

This is the format i am using for this:

 

header-arecord,address,fqdn,disabled,TTL,view

 

Im not able to find the right way to add the PRT "true" value for adding it to the .csv.

 

When you manually create an A Record via the GUI, the ptr record creation is already selected.

 

Thanks in advance,

Carlos.

correct,

 

you would have to add an additional line that creates the PTR record as well.

 

or, you can just create a HOST record instead, and that will automanage the PTR.

Hello, CFernandez,

 

Just add a "create_ptr" column in your CSV file and flag it to TRUE to every A record that you want to autocreate the PTR record.

 

header-arecord address* _new_address fqdn* create_ptr disabled ttl view
arecord 192.168.1.2 yourhost.yourdomain.com True False   default

 

Remember: The zone must exist. Otherwise, operation will fail.

 

Hope this helps.
