vNIOS for KVM are supported for NIOS versions 7.2.x, 7.3.x, and 8.x. Note that NIOS 7.2.x DOES NOT support the following features:

  • Elastic scaling for the Grid Master
  • Elastic scaling with temporary licenses
  • Elastic scaling for vNIOS for KVM in OpenStack with DHCP enabled
  • Reporting and the ND virtual appliances
  • IPv6
  • HA (High Availability)


For NIOS 7.2.x, you must configure the LAN1 IP address and network properties through cloud-init or manually through the Infoblox console CLI after the vNIOS virtual appliance has started.

You can configure the vNIOS virtual appliance as a Grid member or a reporting member. vNIOS for KVM supports the following reporting appliances for NIOS 8.0.0 version: IB-V805, IB-V1405, IB-V2205, and IB-V4005. When you set up a vNIOS reporting virtual appliance, it is used solely for reporting purposes. You cannot add licenses to run other services, such as DNS and DHCP, on a reporting appliance. The Infoblox reporting solution automates the collection, analysis, and presentation of core network service data that assists you in planning and mitigating network outage risks so you can manage your networks more efficiently. For more information about Infoblox Grids and reporting solution, refer to the Infoblox NIOS Documentation. Note that you must create an instance that has a second disk associated with it. For more information see, Setting Up vNIOS OpenStack Flavors.
