The Infoblox Advanced DNS Protection solution offers the following licenses: Threat Protection, Threat Protection (Software add-on), and Threat Protection Update. The following are descriptions for each of these licenses:

  • ThreatProtection(Softwareadd-on): The Software ADP license is a subscription license. Grid Manager displays a warning message when the license expires. You must renew the license to use the Software ADP service. To renew the license, contact your Infoblox representative or Infoblox Technical Support. Before you obtain your permanent license, you can install a temporary license for Threat Protection (Software add-on) using the set temp_license CLI command. For more information, refer to the InfobloxCLIGuide. Infoblox supports ThreatProtection(Softwareadd-on) and ThreatProtectionUpdate licenses for elastic scaling. For more information, see About Elastic Scaling.

    Note

    You cannot install Multi-Grid Management and Microsoft Management licenses if you install ThreatProtection or ThreatProtection(Softwareadd-on) licenses on the NIOS appliance.

  • Threat Protection Update: To receive initial and subsequent threat protection rules and rule updates, you must have the Threat Protection Update license installed. You can then configure NIOS to automatically download and publish threat protection rules or you can manually complete the process. For information, see Manually Uploading Rulesets and Publishing Rule Updates.

With valid licenses installed, the threat protection appliance can be used as a DNS caching or DNS authoritative server. You can join the appliance to the Grid and treat it as a Grid member. Note that if you install a Threat Protection license on a member, you can enable threat protection only on this member. Contact your Infoblox representative to obtain the Threat Protection, Threat Protection Update and Threat Protection (Software add-on) licenses. For information about licenses, see Managing Licenses.
