WAPI: Reset fields to inherited status

Hi Forum,

 

I am trying to delete PXE-Boot options (next-server/bootfile) from an existing fixed address by REST-PUT. Does anyone know how to reset these fields, so they go back to the "inherited" (from network) state?

 

{"bootfile": "" "empty" or "null"} will be accepted literally  

{"bootfile": 0, empty or null } are "Bad Requests".

 

Thanks for any hint

You will also need to use the "use_" field for each attribute.  Here's how to clear out all three PXE options.

 

Before setting, getting the pertenant fields for a specific fixed address:

 

curl -k1 -u admin:infoblox -X GET 'https://192.168.1.6/wapi/v2.11/fixedaddress?ipv4addr=192.168.1.201&_return_fields%2b=bootfile,bootserver,nextserver,use_bootfile,use_bootserver,use_nextserver'                                                                                                                             

returns:

 

 

[
    {
        "_ref": "fixedaddress/ZG5zLmZpeGVkX2FkZHJlc3MkMTAuOS4xNi4yMDEuMC4u:192.168.1.201/default", 
        "bootfile": "boot.bin", 
        "bootserver": "10.10.10.10", 
        "ipv4addr": "192.168.1.201", 
        "network_view": "default", 
        "nextserver": "10.10.10.10", 
        "use_bootfile": true, 
        "use_bootserver": true, 
        "use_nextserver": true
    }
]         

 

 

Then set each value using the _ref for the fixed address:

 

curl -k1 -u admin:infoblox -X PUT 'https://192.168.1.6/wapi/v2.11/fixedaddress/ZG5zLmZpeGVkX2FkZHJlc3MkMTAuOS4xNi4yMDEuMC4u:192.168.1.201/default' \
-H "Content-Type: application/json" -d  \
'{
	"bootfile": "",
	"bootserver": "",
	"nextserver": "",
	"use_bootfile": false,
	"use_bootserver": false,
	"use_nextserver": false
}'

 

 

Review the fields again, after setting:

 

curl -k1 -u admin:infoblox -X GET 'https://192.168.1.6/wapi/v2.11/fixedaddress?ipv4addr=192.168.1.201&_return_fields%2b=bootfile,bootserver,nextserver,use_bootfile,use_bootserver,use_nextserver'

returns:

 

 

[
    {
        "_ref": "fixedaddress/ZG5zLmZpeGVkX2FkZHJlc3MkMTAuOS4xNi4yMDEuMC4u:192.168.1.201/default", 
        "ipv4addr": "192.168.1.201", 
        "network_view": "default", 
        "use_bootfile": false, 
        "use_bootserver": false, 
        "use_nextserver": false
    }
]
