Supermarket Belongs to the Community

Supermarket belongs to the community. While Chef has the responsibility to keep it running and be stewards of its functionality, what it does and how it works is driven by the community. The chef/supermarket repository will continue to be where development of the Supermarket application takes place. Come be part of shaping the direction of Supermarket by opening issues and pull requests or by joining us on the Chef Mailing List.

Knife Infoblox Knife Plugin

A knife plugin for interacting with Infoblox DNS/IPAM servers.

Install & Usage Instructions


knife infoblox dns [cname HOSTNAME CANONICAL ] | [arecord HOSTNAME IP ] | [ptr HOSTNAME TARGET IPADDR]
knife infoblox host [create HOSTNAME1 [ HOSTNAME2...][-N NETWORK][-i IPADDRESS][-n SUGGEST][-m MACADDR]]
[edit HOSTNAME [-m MACADDR][-i IP]
[delete HOSTNAME [-i IP]]
knife infoblox ip [NETWORK [ --next-available|-n #COUNT ]]
knife infoblox network [NETWORK [ --next-available|-n [--exclude|-N LIST ] #COUNT ]]


If you are running Chef-DK you can install it by running:

$ chef gem install knife-infoblox

Otherwise, this plugin is distributed as a Ruby Gem. To install it, run:

$ gem install knife-infoblox

Depending on your system's configuration, you may need to run this command with root privileges.


In addition to the command-specific options, the plugin supports a common set

Most options can be passed to the knife subcommands explicitly but this
quickly becomes tiring, repetitive, and error-prone. A better solution is to
add some of the common configuration to your ~/.chef/knife.rb or your
projects .chef/knife.rb file like so:

knife[:infoblox_username] = 'joetester'
knife[:infoblox_password] = 'hootytooty'
knife[:infoblox_hostname] = ''


The subcommands work the same way they work for knife bootstrap. Please see for more information on the subcommands.
