BlueCat

To integrate your BlueCat server with your CloudBolt instance follow these simple steps.

Configuring BlueCat in CloudBolt’s Web Interface

  1. Log into CloudBolt as an admin user
  2. Navigate to Admin, IP Management.
  3. Click ‘Add an IPAM…’
  4. Enter the appropriate credentials for a new BlueCat integration
  5. Save the changes
  6. Navigate to the Networks tab and click Import Networks. CloudBolt will query your BlueCat server to bring in the network CIDRs you have configured.
  7. Enable the BlueCat orchestration for this instance from the Orchestration tab.

Associating BlueCat networks with your existing CloudBolt Networks

From the networks tab of your BlueCat instance, you can map a single BlueCat network CIDR to one or more Resource Handler networks. Any CloudBolt networks that are so mapped will delegate hostname validation and IP address allocation to the given BlueCat server.

Customizing BlueCat orchestration

CloudBolt ships with a sample orchestration hook for BlueCat that defines functions to: - validate a hostname - to allocate an IP for a hostname - to delete a host and release that IP

You may wish to edit these functions for more sophisticated logic.

Troubleshooting Tips

CloudBolt needs to have a domain name configured when deploying a new Server to a BlueCat-associated network. This can come from the DNS Domain value of the CloudBolt Network, itself. That domain also needs to be what’s configured in BlueCat, or it will refuse to register a host to the IP.
