NIOS 6.2.6 Release NotesINTRODUCTIONInfoblox NIOS 6.2.6 software, coupled with Infoblox appliance platforms, enables customers to deploy large, robust, manageable and cost-effective Infoblox grids. This next-generation solution enables distributed delivery of core network services including DNS, DHCP, IPAM, TFTP, and FTP with the nonstop availability and realtime service management required for todays 24x7 advanced IP networks and applications. Please note the following: NIOS 6.1.0 and later versions do not support the IF-MAP service. You cannot upgrade Infoblox Orchestration Servers to NIOS 6.1.0 or later. The IF-MAP service is supported in 5.1r2-IBOS-1 and 6.0.0IBOS-1. For more information, visit the Infoblox Support web site at http://www.infoblox.com/en/support/support-center-login.html. NIOS 6.0 and later is not supported on Ciscos AXP platform (vNIOS for Cisco) due to the lack of 64-bit support on that platform. As a result, you cannot upgrade a grid with a vNIOS for Cisco grid member on AXP to NIOS 6.0 or later. If youd like to run Infoblox NIOS 6.0 or later on your Cisco 2900 or 3900 series ISR routers, please choose the Cisco SRE-V (UCS Express) software platform, which supports Infoblox vNIOS for VMware virtual appliances. This release has no new features. Supported Platforms Infoblox NIOS 6.2.x is supported on the following platforms: NIOS Appliances: IB-250-A, -550-A, -1050-A, -1550-A, -1552-A, -1852-A, -2000, -2000-A, and -4010 Note that NIOS 6.0.x was not supported on the IB-2000 appliance. Infoblox NIOS 6.2.x is not supported on the IB-250, -500, -1000, -1200, -550, -1050, -1550, and -1552 appliances. Please see the section Upgrading to NIOS 6.x.x on page 11 if you are upgrading a grid that contains these appliances and for additional upgrade information. Note that IB-250-A appliances support all of the services of the larger Infoblox appliances, except for configuration as a grid master or grid master candidate. vNIOS for VMware on ESX/ESXi Servers: The Infoblox vNIOS on VMware software can run on ESX or ESXi servers that have DAS (Direct Attached Storage) or iSCSI (Internet Small Computer System Interface) SAN (Storage Area Network) attached. You can install the vNIOS software package on a host with VMware ESX or ESXi 4.x installed and configure it as an IB-VM-250, IB-VM-550, IB-VM-1050, IB-VM-1550, IB-VM-1850, or IB-VM-2000 virtual appliance. In addition, vSphere vMotion is also supported. You can migrate vNIOS virtual appliances from one ESX or ESXi server to another without any service outages. The migration preserves the hardware IDs and licenses of the vNIOS virtual appliances. Note that the IB-VM-250 virtual appliance supports all the services provided by vNIOS virtual appliances, but it is not recommended as a grid master or grid master candidate. For more information about vNIOS on VMware, refer to the Infoblox Installation Guide for vNIOS Software on VMware.

NIOS 6.2.6 Release NotesWith this release, you can deploy the IB-VM-250, IB-VM-550, and IB-VM-1050 vNIOS on VMware virtual appliances with either a 50 GB or 120 GB hard disk. You can configure the 50 GB vNIOS virtual appliances as grid members. They are not recommended as grid masters or grid master candidates. The following table shows the supported vNIOS on VMware appliance models: Recommended as Grid Master and Grid Master Candidate (Yes/No) No No No No Yes No Yes Yes Yes Yes

vNIOS for VMware on Cisco UCS Express/SRE-V: The Infoblox vNIOS on VMware software can also run on Cisco SRE-V (Services Ready Engine Virtualization), which is part of the Cisco UCS (Unified Computing System) Express. Cisco SRE-V enables the VMware vSphere Hypervisor to be provisioned on Cisco SRE 700/710 and 900/910 Service Modules. The Cisco SRE Service Module can reside in the Cisco 2900 and 3900 series ISRs G2. The following table lists the supported vNIOS on VMware virtual appliances on SRE 700/710 and SRE 900/910:vNIOS on VMware Virtual Appliances IB-BOB IB-VM-250 IB-VM-550 IB-VM-1050 Cisco SRE 700/710 Yes Yes Yes No Cisco SRE 900/910 Yes Yes Yes Yes

NIOS 6.2.6 Release NotesNote that all vNIOS on VMware virtual appliances running on Cisco SRE-V are not recommended as grid masters or grid master candidates. The IB-BOB virtual appliance only supports configuration as a grid member. For information about Cisco SRE-V, refer to the Cisco documentation. vNIOS on Riverbed Steelhead Appliances: Infoblox has certified the vNIOS software with RiOS (Riverbed Optimization System) v6.1.x and later and RSP (Riverbed Services Platform) service v6.0.1 and later on Riverbed Steelhead models 1050 and 2050. For additional information, refer to the Quick Start Guide for Installing vNIOS Software on Riverbed Service Platforms. NOTE: By default, you cannot upgrade a grid with a Riverbed virtual member to NIOS 6.x. You can, however, obtain a hotfix from Infoblox to allow this upgrade to proceed. For information, contact Infoblox Technical Support.
