The management system is the computer from which you configure and monitor the Infoblox appliance. You access the appliance from the management system remotely across an Ethernet network or directly through a serial cable. After completing the steps in Cabling the Appliance to a Network, you can open an HTTPS connection to the appliance and access the Infoblox Grid Manager using a supported Web browser. You must install and enable Javascript for the Grid Manager to function properly. Grid Manager supports only SSL version 3 and TLS version 1 connections. Infoblox recommends using the latest release of the supported versions of Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome for best performance.

Alternatively, start an SSHv2 connection and access the CLI through an SSHv2 client. You can also access the CLI by connecting a serial cable directly from the console port of a management system to the console port on the appliance, and then using a terminal emulation program. Infoblox recommends that the management system meet the following requirements to operate an Infoblox appliance.
