Quick Deployments must be enabled in Bluecat for Morpheus to create instantly available DNS records when using Bluecat DNS.

Adding IP Pools to Networks

Morpheus can automatically assign the next available Bluecat IP in an IP/Network Pool and create the corresponding DNS records, as well as remove the records upon teardown. To enable this, add an Bluecat IP/Network Pool to the Network Pool section on a Network(s).

  1. Navigate to Infrastructure - Network- Networks
  2. Select a Network name and EDIT, or select ACTIONS - Edit
  3. In the NETWORK POOL section, search for and select the name of the IP/Network Pool.
    • Gateway, DNS and CIDR must be populated for static/pool IP assignment
    • Select Allow IP Override to allow selecting between DHCP, Static entry and Pool Selection at provision time
    • Deselect DHCP server if a DHCP server will not be used on the network (only static and/or IP Pool IP assignment)
