Hello,

 

I don't really understand your quesiton? not sure what you mean by "add host" section.

 

IP's must always be added to Infoblox as it is a DDI appliance. DDI requires a IP address.

 

however Aruba ClearPass requires only a MAC address, this is because it is a a NAC appliance.

 

As such:

1. when an asset on Infoblox is added or updated, the information (which includes the MAC and IP) will be sent to Aruba. 

 

2. Aruba recieves all the informaiton (MAC+IP address). However Aruba only needs the MAC address.

 

3. you may remove the information from the Infoblox Ecosystem template that removes the IP address informaiton.

 

4. you must add an IP address when adding assets to Infolbox, so removing the IP address when adding a host (or anything else) to Infoblox isn't possible.

 

hope this helps,
