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.x versions: 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 that you can manage your networks more efficiently. For more information about Infoblox Grids and reporting solution, refer to the Infoblox NIOS Documentation. Note that for reporting you must create an instance that has a second disk associated with it. For more information see, Setting Up vNIOS OpenStack Flavors.
