vRA 8.1 and Infoblox 1.1 Plugin

I have been unsuccessful with getting vRA 8.1 to integrate with with new 1.1 plugin.  The "IP Allocate" task fails with the following error:

 

" IP ALLOCATE failed: Cannot create 'record:host' object(s): b'{ "Error": "AdmConDataNotFoundError: View default not found", \n "code": "Client.Ibap.Data.NotFound", \n "text": "View default not found"\n}' [code 404] (less)"

 

So it seems that it cannot create a host record and mentions the "default view."  We don't use the default view in Infoblox, we use one for "internal" and one for "external."  Does anyone know if I need to set this in vRA?  I don't know where to do that though.  It looks like you can add properties on the Infoblox integration but if that's the missing piece, what's the property name that I need?  This seems so different than the plugin for 7.6 which relied heavily on Orchestrator.  This one doesn't seem to use it at all.  Any tips would be most appreciated.


Thanks!

Nevermind folks.  Figured it out.  For those who run into this, you need to add the Infoblox.IPAM.Network.dnsView property to the integration and then also to the blueprint.  This will allow you to specify a DNS view other than default.  Cheers.

Could you show an example of your blueprint and integration?

 

thanks

I recently setup the Infoblox 1.1 plugin for vRA 8.1 and ran into an interesting challenge that I thought I would share. The setup of the plugin is straightforward; follow the documentation and you’ll likely be set. However, if you use custom DNS views in Infoblox (internal, external, etc.) then some additional configuration is required that’s not easily identified. Out of the box, the Infoblox IPAM integration comes with only a few default properties. I left these values in place when creating my first VM build blueprint but the Infoblox_AllocateIP action would always fail. Action Run logs under the Extensibility tab are a great way to troubleshoot.

All the IPAM operations code can be found after downloading the zip package under bundle.zip -> <operation-name>.zip -> source.py. In case you need to adjust them for specific use case(s), you can extract the desired <operation-name>.zip package, modify the source.py file and zip it again. Note that the def handler(context, inputs): is the entry point of execution and its name and arguments should not be modified.
