An OpenNMS provisioning user can configure OpenNMS to create provisioning requisitions from DNS that are associated with a Monitoring Location.
The OpenNMS Provisioning system includes various import handlers that can treat external systems as the canonical system of record for a set of nodes to be monitored. This is an enhancement that allows such configuration to indicate a Monitoring Location. When the requisition is “synchronized”, if the Monitoring Location doesn’t already exist, it will be created with default attributes.
An OpenNMS administrator can then add a location-aware DNS requisition which results in imported nodes having the proper Minion location set.
