The Lumu Virtual Appliance (VA) offers a seamless way to integrate the network metadata of your entire enterprise into the Lumu cloud with the lowest impact on the network operation.
In the scenario where your company is not using the Virtual Appliance’s built-in DNS resolver, but still using the VA for collecting DNS metadata, you still have the option to configure third-party solutions to forward DNS queries to Lumu using VA Collectors. This approach does not require modifying the network configuration.
In this guide, we show how to configure Infoblox NIOS to forward all DNS packets to Lumu through Virtual Appliance.
Once you have installed and configured a Lumu Virtual Appliance with the respective DNS Queries collector, go to the Lumu Virtual Appliance and refresh the VA collectors settings by running the command lumu-appliance collectors refresh. If the appliance is running, it should be stopped for setting up collectors.
Inform the port number and start the virtual appliance:
Once you have installed and configured a Lumu Virtual Appliance with the respective firewall collector, the next step is to set up Infoblox to forward firewall metadata to Lumu. Follow these steps to specify Infoblox syslog servers to send all DNS queries to Lumu without using Lumu as a primary DNS server in your network.
