To manage RIR allocated addresses and send registration updates through NIOS, you must first add RIR organizations and create RIR allocated networks in NIOS. You can then reassign network addresses within the RIR allocated address block to other organizations based on your requirements, and then configure NIOS to send registration updates directly to the RIPE database. Any data you manage through the Grid is handled by the Grid Master.
When the Grid Master is an HA pair, the active node handles the submission of data. If an HA failover occurs during a submission, the failing node immediately aborts the submission. The new active node resumes the next submission. For more information about HA pairs, see About HA Pairs.
To manage and submit updates to the RIPE database, you must first enable the Grid to support RIR registration updates. You can then enter RIR information, such as RIR organizations and RIR attributes.
To configure the Grid to manage RIR allocated addresses and submit updates to RIPE, complete the following:
Before you can manage RIR data through Grid Manager, you must first enable support for RIR registration updates.
To enable support for RIR registration updates:
Enable Updates of RIR Registrations: Select this to enable the support for submitting RIR registration updates to the RIPE database. When you enable this feature, you can configure the appliance to send registration updates to RIPE for network reassignments and reallocations.
Ensure that you configure DNS resolvers for the Grid when you enable this feature. For more information about how to configure DNS resolvers, see Enabling DNS Resolution.
You can configure the appliance to send RIR address updates to RIPE through the RIPE REST API or through an email using the maintainer email address specified in the RIR organization. Note that when you use the API method to delete a registered address block, you do not need to submit RIR attributes that match the data in the RIPE database. However, when you use the email method, you must enter RIR attribute values that match the data in the database. Otherwise, your submission will fail. To view examples of registration updates that NIOS sends, see Previewing Registration Updates.
