Does anybody know if there is a way to view/read the DNS data in InfoBlox via standard Windows DNS manager (dnsmgmt.msc)?

If you have the Microsoft Management license installed, you can configure a grid member with that license installed to synchronise with Microsoft DNS, in either a read-only or read/write fashion. You can then use the Microsoft MMC tool to manage Microsoft DNS records as normal, and you will see any records that have been added by Infoblox (if read/write is configured). If you make any changes via the MMC, those changes will be reflected in the Infoblox UI next time it does a sync. So you are not editing the data directly in Infoblox, but the data in MS DNS and Infoblox should be synchronised, providing everything is working correctly.
