Good Afternoon IPAM Community,
I might be overthinking this a little but I am curious what others, who have large infoblox deployments, have done when setting up infoblox in Orion IPAM.
We have a large deployment for our enterprise and our enterprise is basically spread across 3 states. We have 2 datacneters and we have split our infoblox deployment between the two datacenters. for our implementation we have 6 grid members in HA deployment and 3 standalone servers for network insight, Reporting server and a grid master. each grid member has a LAN address and a VIP. The documentation for Orion IPAM simply says that before adding the infoblox server to IPAM it first needs to be added to NPM as a node. Thats where I get confused. I have 6 grid member servers. Since we are using HA this is really 3 clusters of servers each cluster having 2 servers. Each cluster will have a VIP and each server in the cluster will also have a LAN IP address. My question is, Which IP address do I use when adding the Node to NPM... the VIP or the servers LAN IP address?
We have a small GRID deployment (DHCP and DNS) with a 2 node HA cluster in our main datacenter and a single node in our secondary datacenter. I monitor the VIP for cluster up/down status, and each node in the GRID. That being said I'm able to pull DHCP scopes into Orion IPAM, but no leases. I opened a ticket on May 31, but no resolution as of yet. I'm running NIOS 8.3.0-371835 and Orion IPAM 4.9.0.
