Microsoft DHCP

We plan to sync DHCP from Microsoft Servers to two Infoblox Members (read only).


Do we need 2 Microsoft Management Licenses, 1 for each Infoblox member or does the license apply to the whole grid?

No you need microsoft license only for the appliance to which synchronize the data. e.g Grid master.

Hello There,


You can use an Infoblox grid master or any members(Except reporting/NI) to manage your Microsoft DNS/DHCP data from the IPAM. Depending upon who is going to serve that purpose(Master or any members), you would need to apply a Microsoft Management license on ALL of them. For more details, please read this whitepaper from Infoblox(Where they clearly specify this within the "Requirements" list) - note that this WP is about reports using the synced data, but the requirements section specifies about the license part you're looking for :


Infoblox also has a concept of "Grid-Wide licenses" which when applied once becomes applicable to the Grid master/members(which ever supports that GW licensed feature). So its a good idea to ask your account manager if Infoblox now offers(Grid Wide licensing for "Microsoft Management" - Which wasn't supported before). Good luck,

Best regards,
