Hi,

 

I'm newbie with infoblox softwares and I try to automate my env using infoblox API (Version 2.3).

 

It's possible to create a cname record with multiples hostname/A record via API? I have access only in the API :/

 

Something like that:

 

A Records:

server01.foo.bar -> 192.168.0.10

server02.foo.bar -> 192.168.0.11

server03.foo.bar -> 192.168.0.12

 

CNAME Records:

servers.foo.bar

|-> server01.foo.bar

|-> server02.foo.bar

|-> server03.foo.bar

 

 

An example how I tring to use:

curl -k -u $user:$pass -X POST https://api.foo.bar/wapi/v2.3/record:cname/71c45751c6ecccbc527d55cb06a4430d71c45751c6ecccbc527d55cb06a4430d71c4575:servers.foo.bar/MyRegion -d '{"canonical":["server01.foo.bar","server02.foo.bar","server03.foo.bar"]}'

A CNAME has to be unique, by RFC. As such, you can only add a single CNAME to point to a single FQDN (fully qualified domain name).

That said, you could either have “servers.foo.bar” be multiple A records (which is valid), and let those round-robin, or use DTC (DNS Traffic Manager, separate license) to achieve this with some added “smarts”, such as geo balancing, service monitoring, etc. Your sales team can assist you with a demo of DTC, if interested.
