The Infoblox IPAM Driver for RHOSP uses a variety of Extensible Attributes (EAs) to manage its configuration. The needed extensible attributes may be created automatically using the script inside the IPAM agent container. To run the python scripts inside the Infoblox IPAM agent container, complete the following steps:

  1. Use the following command to enter the container:
    $ docker exec -it infoblox_ipam_agent /bin/bash

  2. Enter the path of the networking_infoblox python package:
    $ cd /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/networking_infoblox/tools

  3. Run the file:
    $ python

The script prompts you for the user name and password of an Infoblox NIOS admin user, which is needed to create the EA definitions.

The script also prompts you for association or un-association of network views to OpenStack. This is an important step. You can use this script to select network views explicitly to use in OpenStack. An associated network view will have Cloud Adapter ID EAs stored on that network view. The Cloud Adapter ID is equivalent to cloud_data_center_id defined in neutron.conf.

To exit the IPAM agent container, press Ctrl+P and Ctrl+Q in your keyboard.

If you use the Driver with Cloud Platform (CP), you should run on the Grid Master:

  1. Configure neutron.conf with the Grid Master details and administrator user.
  2. Run
  3. Change neutron.conf config to point to the CP member. User details can be changed to the Cloud User. If you have multiple OpenStack deployments for the same Grid Master, then this is needed only for the first RHOSP deployment.
