Single MX record with multiple MX servers

Hi all,

Just wondered if it was supported to have a single MX record in infoblox that contains multiple mail exchanger entries. If so then what format should they be entered in.

Only asking because I'm using ansible to automate infoblox and there is an issue with the api creating multiple MX records with the same name.

Thanks in advance.

An MX record contains only one hostname.  I've not seen where you can provide a comma-separated list.  The RFC does seems to say host (singular).

 

Each MX matches a domain name with two pieces of data, a
preference value (an unsigned 16-bit integer), and the name of a
host.

If there is an issue with the API accepting multiple MX ADD operations, Infoblox support should be able to get the issue resolved!!  That sounds like a bug possibly.  If you  use Postman/CURL/etc. can you send requests to add multiple MX records (to rule out ansible issue)??

Thanks for your reply, it's not something I'd seen but I thought I'd check. I'll test the API directly and see what response I get.
