[RFE]: Associate a FQDN with the IP of the deployed CFME VM
Last modified: 2016-04-29 12:21:26 EDT
Description of problem:
When RHCI deploys CFME VM it has an IP address only, no hostname.
We could explore creating a DNS record in the Satellite DNS which will track the IP of the CFME VM.
We also need to see if the IP will change, assuming CFME VM is restarted, will the IP remain static, or do we need to track it changing and update the DNS record.
The CFME instance now has resolvable hostname assigned to it.
John, is there a mechanism to track IP changes of the CFME VM in case of restarts?
Yes, this should be handled by Satellite.
We are now launching CFME through a ComputeResource in Satellite, this is letting Satellite handle the DHCP/DNS setup.
The flow should be:
- CFME VM has a MAC address registered with Satellite
- CFME VM boots and DHCP lookup on Satellite is based on MAC and will return same IP
For a light test, I tried to restart the VM and it got the same IP. I think any other testing is beyond the scope of this bug, so marking as verified.
