Interesting question.

 

I found that if you SSH to the Infoblox appliance, you can run a DIG command.  This shows the version of DIG, which is typically installed with BIND.  Technically, BIND and DIG could be different versions I suppose.

Hi Midos,

 

It is NIOS version specific but quite simple to identify.

If you have a lab setup or if you have recently restarted DNS in production, goto "Administration-->Logs-->Syslog", add a filter "Message-->Contains" and search for the keyword BIND.

In NIOS 8.2.x till 8.3.2 BIND is 9.10.2


Best Regards,

Found it!!  I knew I had seen it!!

 

Restart the DNS Service on one of your appliances.  Here's how!  Go to Administration > Logs.  Select the member to be restarted.  The logs will be displayed.  You can click the auto refresh option at the top toolbar (second button).  Click RESTART SERVICES at top of the right toolbar.  Member will be the displayed member.  Select FORCE and click RESTART.  Watch the logs for BIND to quit, and when it starts turn off auto refresh and look for the BIND start message in the log.

 

Mine:

starting BIND 9.10.2-ECS-M3 -E -4 -c /infoblox/var/named_conf/named.conf -u nobody

 

Note: the version of BIND varries by Infoblox NIOS version.  I am running 8.2.6.

Good to know. DIG seems to be the same as well.
