I know the best idea here is likely to reserve an IP block per subnet that UCSD doesn't control, but is it possible to reserve an IP somehow such that a static pool won't allocate it, other than excluding it from the list?
E.g. if I create two VMs with UCSD, but need to reserve a VIP in the same pool, can I mark the IP as used even though UCSD doesn't create it?
Or, is it possible to modify an existing, in-use static pool without affecting existing reservations? So I can modify the IP range values to exclude an IP that is in use?
Solved! Go to Solution.
OK I see this task (Get IP Address from Pool) and it tests out good, but this would be for pulling an additional random address out of the pool correct?
So I could provide an additional IP if someone asks for it, but if someone assigns an IP and then lets me know what it is, is there a built in way to mark it as reserved?
I forgot to mention that as you pull IPs to test, if they are in use, I’d leave those reservations in so the next time you don’t use them and Director won’t offer them up.
I used this recently in a workflow (https://communities.cisco.com/docs/DOC-60468) to test for port 443. When it is up I have the workflow move on to the next part. First I test if ESXi is up and the I test if my vCenter installed.
