Note

Morpheus SolarWinds integration does not support zone record syncing despite the presence of the ZONES tab on the integration detail page. This is a UI feature carried over from other networking integrations and is not supported at this time.

Adding IP Pools to Networks

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

  1. Navigate to Infrastructure > Network > Networks

  2. Select a Network name and click EDIT

  3. In the NETWORK POOL typeahead field, search for and select the name of the selected IP/Network Pool.

    • Gateway, DNS, and CIDR must be populated for static/pool IP assignment

    • Select ALLOW IP OVERRIDE, if desired, to allow selecting between DHCP, static IP address entry, and pool address 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)
