CSV Import into IPAM Express

Greetings,


Cutting my teeth on Infoblox with the IPAM Express VM and am running into an issue with the .CSV import.  Trieds every way through Tuesday but I'm always getting the following error message:

 

CSV Import file is not valid. First line of the file must be either a valid version number or a valid header line.

 

Is this a limitation of IPAM Express (feature not available) or is there a templace for a blank CSV to use?  I tried exporting from IPAM and re-importing the same file and the software gave me the same format error.

 

Can anyone provide some info on the format of the CSV file for import into IPAM Express please?  Pretty please?  Retyping an Excel file host by host would really discourage me from purchasing an upgrade from the Freeware version :/

 

Thanks for your time Smiley Happy

 

- Ben

can you post the first few lines of the CSV file, and examples of what you downloaded so more people in the community can look at it ?

you also have to be careful with CRLF issues with the csv files, then can sometimes mess up the parser.

Here's a very simple sample.  I havn't played much with the Freeware version, but when you export out of the product make sure you use export in "Infoblox CSV Import Format."  On the support site there is a full documentation of how to use CSV import.

Header-Network
address
netmask
network
10.1.0.0
255.255.0.0
network
10.2.0.0
255.255.0.0

Networks you can import but I want to import IP addresses in the network as when I run the discovery the name is not being discovered. I have two IPAM Express VMs at two sites. So I am manually adding the names and some other fields like comment in a neetwork on one IPAM Express. I want to take the same addresses with name and comments from the first IPAM express and import those in the second IPAM Express so I do not have to do the manual work twice. I just want to do this in the beginning and going forward we should be able to add the name and comment to each device as the addresses are dished out. We are only using this for IPAM. All the documentation refers to import for dns and DHCP records, I have checked out the documentation before posting my query. I have exported the data from IPAM Express from a network where I have added the name and comments ( I have no choice to export to a format for Infoblox import if I want to export IP addresses in a network) and tried to use the same format as described in the csv import document. I get an error that IP address import is not allowed.

Try this.  At this time, you

Try this.  At this time, you cannot export to "CSV Import Format" the list of hosts.  This table example will work as outlined in the CSV import guide.

header-hostrecord
FQDN
addresses
configure_for_dns
hostrecord
router.local
10.0.0.1
FALSE
hostrecord
host.local
10.0.0.2
FALSE

You're likely going to have to upgrade, especially as you're running multiple instances.  It's much easier to connect them as a Grid and centrally manage.  The freeware is a very stripped down version of the product designed to give users a taste of what the real product can do.  There is no DNS or DHCP services, in which our standard host record and IP reservations integrate with.

In future, I'd direct your comments into the IPAM Express forum: https://community.infoblox.com/forums/ipam-express-freeware.
