Reporting Help

Quick help on some of the reporting topics.

Hierarchy settings for all the navigation menu options (listed in the Table 40.6) are available in the default.xml file.


Infoblox recommends that you do not modify the default.xml file. The navigation menu is built on a custom XML structure that is stored as default.xml in the navigation directory (from the Reporting tag, select the Settings tab -> User Interface -> Navigation Menus -> default). Editing this file changes the specific default settings for the reporting features and your changes become permanent. In addition, you might not be able to see the latest changes made by Infoblox. To restore the default settings, you must reset the NIOS appliance to its original factory settings. For Information, see Resetting a NIOS Appliance to Factory Settings.
