Netbox is an IP address management (IPAM) and data center infrastructure management (DCIM) tool. Initially conceived by the network engineering team at DigitalOcean, NetBox was developed specifically to address the needs of network and infrastructure engineers. It is intended to function as a domain-specific source of truth for network operations.

Supported Architectures

Our images support multiple architectures such as x86-64, arm64 and armhf. We utilise the docker manifest for multi-platform awareness. More information is available from docker here and our announcement here.

Simply pulling linuxserver/netbox should retrieve the correct image for your arch, but you can also pull specific arch images via tags.

The architectures supported by this image are:

Architecture

Tag

x86-64

amd64-latest

arm64

armhf

arm32v7-latest

Parameters

Docker images are configured using parameters passed at runtime (such as those above). These parameters are separated by a colon and indicate <external>:<internal> respectively. For example, -p 8080:80 would expose port 80 from inside the container to be accessible from the host's IP on port 8080 outside the container.

Ports (-p)

Parameter

Function

8000

will map the container's port 8000 to port 8000 on the host

Environment Variables (-e)

Env

Function

PUID=1000

for UserID - see below for explanation

PGID=1000

for GroupID - see below for explanation

SUPERUSER_EMAIL=<SUPERUSER_EMAIL>

Username for admin account

SUPERUSER_PASSWORD=<SUPERUSER_PASSWORD>

Password for admin account

ALLOWED_HOST=<ALLOWED_HOST>

The hostname you will use to access the app (i.e., netbox.example.com

DB_NAME=<DB_NAME>

Databaes name (optional, default: netbox)

DB_USER=<DB_USER>

Database user

DB_PASSWORD=<DB_PASSWORD>

Database password

DB_HOST=<DB_HOST>

Database post (optional, default: postgres

DB_PORT=<DB_PORT>

Database port (optional)

REDIS_HOST=<REDIS_HOST>

Redis host (optional, default: redis

REDIS_PORT=<REDIS_PORT>

Redis port number (optional, default: 6379)

REDIS_PASSWORD=<REDIS_PASSWORD>

Redis password (optional, default: none)

TZ=<TZ>

Timezone (i.e., America/New_York)

Volume Mappings (-v)

Volume

Function

/config

config directory volume mapping

Environment variables from files (Docker secrets)

You can set any environment variable from a file by using a special prepend FILE__.

As an example:

-e FILE__PASSWORD=/run/secrets/mysecretpassword

Will set the environment variable PASSWORD based on the contents of the /run/secrets/mysecretpassword file.

Umask for running applications

For all of our images we provide the ability to override the default umask settings for services started within the containers using the optional -e UMASK=022 setting. Keep in mind umask is not chmod it subtracts from permissions based on it's value it does not add. Please read up here before asking for support.

User / Group Identifiers

When using volumes (-v flags), permissions issues can arise between the host OS and the container, we avoid this issue by allowing you to specify the user PUID and group PGID.

Ensure any volume directories on the host are owned by the same user you specify and any permissions issues will vanish like magic.

In this instance PUID=1000 and PGID=1000, to find yours use id user as below:

$ id username
uid=1000(dockeruser) gid=1000(dockergroup) groups=1000(dockergroup)

Application Setup

Access the WebUI at :8000. For more information, check out NetBox.
