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 of options: [-h INFOBLOX_HOSTNAME][-u INFOBLOX_USERNAME][-p INFOBLOX_PASSWORD]
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
.chef/knife.rb file like so:
knife[:infoblox_username] = 'joetester' knife[:infoblox_password] = 'hootytooty' knife[:infoblox_hostname] = 'ns.example.com'
