When you encounter product issues or require assistance, you can send a request to Infoblox Technical Support by opening a support case through Grid Manager. When you submit a support case, product information such as software version and serial number is automatically collected from the NIOS appliance on which you create the support case. You should however provide detailed information about the issue or your request, business impact, and contact information to ensure that the support request is being addressed by the appropriate resources in a timely manner. When you submit a support request, Infoblox Technical Support automatically authenticates and authorizes the contact email address that you use. It sends a confirmation email to the contact email address if the email address is registered on the Infoblox Technical Support server. If the authentication fails, you will receive an email.
