Important Note

Before you deploy BloxOne services and on-prem hosts, ensure that you prepare your environment according to the requirements for the supported platforms and open all necessary ports for unrestricted outbound access.

Port Usage

The following table lists the port usage for the BloxOne on-prem hosts:

Infoblox recommends that connectivity from the on-prem hosts and services have unrestricted outbound access to the Internet on port 443. This will allow for fewer changes in the future when we change or expand services. For more deployment information, see Best Practices for On-Prem Hosts.

Supported Platforms for On-Prem BloxOne

You may deploy the On-Prem host application on the following:

  • Bare-metal systems running Linux and Docker version 1.13.0 to 17.08.


Infoblox recommends that you use Docker version 17.09 or below (except for 17.05 and 17.06), or version 18.09 or above, to avoid an issue in which the Docker container might re-deploy continuously, resulting in multiple deployments of the on-prem host. In addition, Kubernetes is not supported.

  • VMs that are deployed on VMware ESXi servers version 5.5, 6.0, or 6.5
  • VM infrastructures such as Hyper-V or KVM, running Linux and Docker version 1.13.0 or above. For information about the supported Linux VMs for Hyper-V, refer to this article.

Infoblox has validated the following platforms:

  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.2
  • CentOS 7.3.16
  • Ubuntu 16.04.2.

Minimum System Requirements

The minimum system requirements for your VM are as follows:

  • CPU: 4 core
  • Memory: 8 GB
  • Disk: 64 GB

  • No labels
