IPAM with Multiple Interfaces

Posts: 8

In our Grid Manager, under "Edit" > "Network" we have a IP and VIP configured under "Additional Ports and Addresses"  - This interface is patched into our out-of-band management network.  I cannot seem to get an IPAM discovery to work on this network.  Now, if I try and ping a host on that network using the interface of the IP, I get responses.  If I try and ping it from the VIP address - nothing.  


Pretty new to Infoblox and didn't have a hand in setting this up - any help would be appreciated.

I apologize but your particular configuration is a little unclear and considering you were not involved in the setup, that is understandable. 


The "Additional Ports and Addresses" section is typically leveraged for creating a loopback address for additional service listening and is generally associated with running anycast. Discovery would not run from this IP/interface. The network would need to be reachable from the primary interface on the Infoblox member running discovery for their to be results. 


Are you able to provide a screen shot of the interface configuration? That may be helpful Smiley Happy


Also, are you running the standard NIOS discovery or enhanced discovery with the Network Insight appliance?
