vRealize Automation 7.4 and Infoblox Plugin 4.3.0

Hi,

 

Can anyone advise if the Infoblox plugin 4.3.0 is supported with vRealize Automation.

 

I have had no issues using it. However when adding Tom Bonanno's custom hostname extension (https://dailyhypervisor.com/vrealize-automation-custom-hostnaming-extension/ )

 

Initial success has now been met with intermittent failures to register the A record when the update vRO workflow activates.

 

The Infoblox IPAM Update workflow fails with a IPAM Provider Error:{"code":3000,"mesage":"An error has occurred while updating the A/AAAA/PTR/CNAME records 'throwIpamError#28'

 

Suffice to say the Infoblox Audit log shows the same events when either success or failure occur, except as the workflow in vRO fails the IPAM then deletes its records and the provisioning is a complete fail.

 

Infoblox master is managing a member which has sync to a MS AD integrated DNS zone in Read/Write.

 

Thanks!

vRA 7.4 is not officially supported but testing has been ongoing since its release and no issues have been identified thus far. Intermittent errors would imply more of a timeout issue of some sort, have you talked to Infoblox Support to troubleshoot this?

Tony

Thanks for the response and official statement regarding supportability. Is vRA 7.4 or vRA 7.5 now supported?

 

The issues we had we identified as being caused by the Infoblox member MS directory sync when using multiple Domain controllers for redundancy. These did not, for a short time, have identical records within DNS which was therefore causing the problems. I'd be very interested in understanding better what the recommended, highly available architecture is when using MS DNS and AD integrations. We adjusted timers and multiple settings to get this to work reliably, although it was never 100%.

Official support for vRA 7.5 is planned for the next release of the plugin.

 

Updates to a zone assigned to a Microsoft server may fail as certain record types are not supported. Updating the zone to use the MS DNS servers as external secondary name servers should help avoid this issue.
