Before you begin creating a new host, note the following:
  • On-prem hosts for physical BloxOne B1-105 appliances are automatically created when shipped by Infoblox with the serial number. Do not manually create on-prem hosts for BloxOne physical appliances.
  • Virtual on-prem hosts, including KVM-deployed hosts, connect to the Cloud Services Portal by using valid join tokens.
  • For VEP-1425 and VEP-1485 physical appliances, obtain the seven-digit serial number from the Service Tag label on the bottom of your appliance. You will enter this number when creating a new host.
