An important early step in conducting any census of managed assets is to validate IPAM tracking and allocation data. To that end, Infoblox has been integrated with Lumeta. The Lumeta-Infoblox integration brings the reach of Lumeta’s network discovery to the IP address management (IPAM) space.

When you activate the Infoblox IPAM integration, Lumeta . . .

  1. Queries Infoblox

  2. Correlates that data against what Lumeta “knows”

  3. Generates reports

  4. Pushes metadata about discovered devices to Infoblox

This integration reconciles data between Lumeta and Infoblox without directly reading or modifying Infoblox tables: All pull/update operations are performed by API calls. This integration enables you to produce and export an IP list with which you can update Infoblox's data. With the two solutions working together, gaps in IP management coverage are eliminated and your organization can accurately account for its assets under management.

Configuration via Lumeta GUI

This procedure applies to Lumeta 3.2.4 and later systems. For deployment via the Linux shell, see Deployment & Configuration via Lumeta CLI.

To configure connectivity between the Lumeta Command Center and the Infoblox server:

  1. On the Lumeta main menu, browse to Settings > Integrations  > Other Solutions > Infoblox.

  2. Provide connection credentials, described here:

    FieldExampleDescription
    Polling Interval24How often (in hours) that Lumeta should poll Infoblox for information
    Server Name65.246.241.138The Server name or IP address of the Infoblox server. 
    Server User NameinfobloxYour Infoblox username
    Server Password********

    Your Infoblox password

  3. Click to toggle the Active control from red to green.
    Infoblox is configured.

    For more on this integration's reports, see the IP Address Management page.
    To see the results within Infoblox, log into Infoblox and browse to Data Management > IPAM.

To view extensible attributes from the CLI:

  • curl -s -k -u admin:infoblox -X GET "https://172.16.42.113/wapi/v2.8/extensibleattributedef?_return_fields=name,type,list_values" | grep "name"
            "name": "Building",
            "name": "Country",
            "name": "Region",
            "name": "Site",
            "name": "State",
            "name": "VLAN",
            "name": "IB Discovery Owned",
            "name": "Parental-Control-Policy",
            "name": "Subscriber-Secure-Policy",
            "name": "Proxy-All",
            "name": "Black-List",
            "name": "White-List",
            "name": "PC-Category-Policy",
            "name": "User-Name",
            "name": "ReportingSite",

To view/create/delete extensible attributes from Infoblox GUI: Administration → Extensible Attributes:

Example creating "Operating System" extensible attribute

curl -k -u admin:infoblox -X POST 'https://172.16.42.113/wapi/v2.11/extensibleattributedef' -H "Content-Type: application/json" -d '{"name":"Operating System", "type":"STRING"}'

Add extensible attributes as a column when listing IPs in Infoblox view.
