vNIOS appliances support most of the features of the Infoblox NIOS software, with some limitations. The subtopics in this section describe these limitations. 

Notes

  • VMware Tools are automatically installed for each vNIOS appliance. Infoblox supports the control functions in Hyper-V Manager and VMware Tools. For example, through the vSphere client, you can shut down the virtual appliance.
  • The VMXNET virtual network adapter for vNIOS is not supported from NIOS 8.4.x onwards.

Table E.1 summarizes the supported vNIOS appliance models.

Note

  • The following appliances are supported in NIOS 8.4. However, the last order date has passed and as such, these appliances are no longer available for new sales:

    PT-1400, PT-2200, PT-4000, PT-4000-10GE, ND-800, ND-1400, ND-2200, TE-100, TE-810, TE-820, TE-1410, TE-1420, TE-2210, TE-2220, TR-2200, IB-4010, IB-4020, TR-4000, IB-4030, and IB-4030-10GE.

  • The following appliances are supported only when you upgrade to NIOS 8.4 from an earlier version. They are not supported on a new NIOS 8.4 installation:
    ND-V800, ND-V1400, ND-V2200, TE-V810, TE-V820, TE-V1410, TE-V1420, TE-V2210, TE-V2220, TR-V2200, IB-V4010, IB-V4020, TE-V800,TE-V1400, TE-V2200, CP-V800, CP-V1400, and CP-V2200.


NOTES:

  • You can freely assign resources to these virtual appliances to suit your business needs, as long as the resources are within the limits of the licenses being installed on the appliances.
  • TE appliances are also known as the IB appliances.
  • For IB-V4010, in NIOS 7.x versions, the number of CPU cores is 6.

1For KVM hypervisor only. Not supported for KVM-based OpenStack. Does not support Elastic Scaling.

2vNIOS virtual appliance for Hyper-V is not recommended as a Grid Master or Grid Master Candidate. IB-VM-820 with 55 GB disk is not supported as the Grid Master or Grid Master Candidate for the vNIOS for KVM. The Identity Mapping feature is supported on the IB-VM-810 and IB-VM-820 appliances only if they are configured as Grid members, not as the Grid Master.

3Does not support Elastic Scaling.

4NIOS for KVM is supported in the following environments: OpenStack, RHEL, SuSE Enterprise and Cloud, and CentOS. Note that only IB-V1405 as a Reporting server has been qualified for OpenStack.

5ND virtual appliances are designed for Network Insight only. Discovery is supported in OpenStack only with SRIOV enabled.

For information about the limitations on each vNIOS appliance, see vNIOS for VMware Limitations.
