NetMRI 7.0.5 Release Notes


INTRODUCTION
This release note needs to start with a quick explanation. As many of our long-time customers know, the
product name started out as NetMRI. It later became Network Automation, because NetMRI was also a license
level. We are now reverting back to the original name, although it may take some time for the product to
completely revert. The product name has been changed back throughout the release notes, but has not yet
changed in the product UI, or the longer-lived documentation (e.g. the admin guide).
NetMRI 7.0.5 is an important update that provides performance improvements and fixes for customer-reported
issues. Customers running NetMRI 7.0.4 and earlier are encouraged to update their systems to this maintenance
release at the earliest opportunity.
NetMRI 7.0.5 is a cumulative release and includes all resolved issues from earlier 7.0.x releases. These Release
Notes are also cumulative, and list resolved issues from releases 7.0.[1-5], with a list of Open Issues as of the
7.0.5 Maintenance Release.

About NetMRI 7.0.x


NetMRI 7.0.x provides major feature additions, performance enhancements and security fixes to NetMRI systems
deployed in either standalone appliances or Operations Center modes.
All existing customers will find increased flexibility in device group management and network management
workflows. Operations Center customers will have greater stability at scale.
NetMRI 7.0.x provides new features, performance improvements and fixes for customer-reported issues,
including several security and performance and stability fixes. Customers running NetMRI 7.0.[1,2], 6.9.x, 6.8.x,
and earlier releases, are encouraged to update their systems. Customers upgrading from 6.8.x should start from
6.8.7 or 6.8.8, and must refer to the 6.9.4 release notes, pay special attention to the upgrade guidelines in
both sets of release notes (6.9.4 and 7.0.x), and review all feature changes, as there are numerous
considerations that must be taken into account.
As part of NetMRI 7.0.x, and all future releases, Infoblox conducts active penetration scanning. This is in
addition to the vulnerability scans conducted on previous releases. All reported and discovered SQL injection
vulnerabilities have been fixed. A number of other lower severity vulnerabilities have been found, and fixed, as
well. There are some remaining Cross Site Scripting and Cross-Site Request Forgery potential vulnerabilities
identified by our internal scan that will be addressed in upcoming releases. All vulnerabilities require an
authenticated user to initiate the action. No un-authenticated exploits exist to the limits of our testing ability.
The following sections describe the 7.0.x feature set improvements, additional device support, upgrade
guidelines, resolved issues, and known issues.

NEW FEATURES

NetMRI 7.0.5 Release Notes


NetMRI 7.0.3
Sunset of SHA1 Signed Certificates

As the support for SHA1 certificates is being sunseted at the end of this year, all new certificates are generated
using SHA256. However, customers with existing certificates may want to update their existing ones.
Customers with self-signed certificates can refresh to the more secure setting. From the admin shell, run the
command: configure certificates https then select option 3 (Refresh self-signed certificate).
Customers with external certificates can re-run the Certificate Signing Request process from the admin shell to
generate a new CSR. That CSR will then need to go to the signing authority, and the resulting certificate
installed. Run the command: configure certificates https then selecting option 1 (Generate CSR).
Then follow the CSR process, and install the new certificate using option 2.
Should any issues be encountered in this process, the previous certificates can be restored from an archive file
from the admin shell. Run the command: restore <archive_name> -https_certs to restore the
original certificate.
New Device Functionality

NetMRI 7.0.3 now includes support for IOS-XE systems configured for VRF, and support for FortiGate devices
configured for VDOM.
Additional Information about Device Group Membership Logic

While not strictly new functionality, additional explanation of Device Group Logic is warranted. When evaluating
the group criteria, low-assurance (<20% Assurance) network devices are treated as end hosts and are not
processed at all (not even if the device is listed explicitly by IP address in the group criteria). The exception to
this handling is when the 'include end hosts and low-assurance devices' checkbox is selected. The checkbox was
previously available for both Basic and Extended device groups, but as of 7.0 was removed from Basic device
groups. The previous name of this checkbox was simply 'Include end hosts,' which may have contributed to the
confusion.

NetMRI 7.0.2
No new features for this release.

NetMRI 7.0.1
Blackout Periods

You can define recurring Blackout Periods during which discovery protocols and processes will not run. These
periods can be defined: globally across all networks; on specified discovery ranges; on device groups; or on
individual devices. Blackout periods prevent NetMRI from interacting with specified devices, device groups,
ranges or networks for any discovery or data collection task. A second blackout type, change blackout, restricts
NetMRI from device interaction via the CLI, preventing: logins; scheduled or run-now job executions; Telnet/SSH
proxy; and port control UI features. For information, see Defining Blackout Periods for Discovery Ranges and
Defining Discovery Blackout Periods in the NetMRI Administrators Guide.
Device Groups Enhancements

NetMRI 6.9 introduced two types of device groups: Basic and Extended, and limited the total number of
Extended groups to 50. In NetMRI 7.0.x you can create up to 375 groups, split between a limit of 125 Extended
and 250 Basic device groups. While the hard limit from NetMRI 6.9 has been raised, and scale testing has been
done at this level, there are many factors that impact performance (e.g. total load on the system, complexity

NetMRI 7.0.5 Release Notes


of the group definitions, etc.). If the customer has a large number of extended groups (even below the
maximum allowable), and experiences performance issues, they may be required to convert extended groups to
basic, or to reduce the total number of groups, as part of correcting those problems. For information, see
Creating Device Groups in the NetMRI Administrators Guide.
The nested device groups feature enables you to create device groups that nest within larger group categories.
For example, the Routing device group could contain child device groups titled Cisco, Juniper and
Alcatel, each of which specifies its own regular expression to filter devices of the Routing type from a specific
vendor. You may create nested/child device groups up to six levels deep in the Device Group tree. For
information, see Creating Device Groups in the NetMRI Administrators Guide. Currently, updating a parent
group definition does not cause the child group to be recalculated this caveat will be addressed in a
maintenance release.
Device Groups also offer the flexibility to specify custom field data as matching information against custom field
identification values defined on individual devices. You specify custom field information in device groups
through the Device Group Criteria. Doing so, you can craft device groups that match specific types of
information, such as Business Units, operational function, and so on. For information, see Device Group Criteria
and Device Custom Fields in the NetMRI Administrators Guide.
External Authorization and Authentication

NetMRI 7.0.1 has expanded its external authentication support, and adds external authorization capabilities.
NetMRI adds LDAP to its supported protocols for external authentication.
NetMRI also substantially expands its AAA external server support by enabling administrative authorization
through LDAP, Active Directory, RADIUS and TACACS+ protocols. You can use external AAA services to control
user access to NetMRI features with the same user roles and privileges defined on the local NetMRI system.
NetMRI enables you to add new authentication and authorization servers, and assign remote user groups to
NetMRI user roles and Device Groups. For information, see NetMRI Authentication and Authorization in the
NetMRI Administrators Guide.
There are significant changes to the User API calls necessitated by the external authorization capability.
Customers calling User API functions as part of custom scripts will likely need to rewrite those scripts to use the
newer 3.0 API.
OpenSSL has been upgraded to 1.0.2, which will cause SSL handshaking to be done only using TLS 1.2. Systems
providing AAA over SSL must be able to respond to TLS 1.2. If the AAA servers are older systems that have not
been upgraded to support TLS 1.2 (released in 2008) then SSL will not work.
Network Device Interaction Improvements

NetMRI 7.0.1 enhances the CCS scripting/Job engine to support improved approaches for collecting device
configurations, improved prompt detection and error handling for regular expressions and for general error
detection. Changes in this area allow better definition of device properties to better avoid false-positives on
running-to-saved configuration comparisons, or false changes on running-to-running or saved-to-saved. More of
the definition of the device interaction is stored in the database, resulting in more stream-lined Device Support
Bundles.
Operations Center to Collector Improvements

NetMRI 7.0.1 further improves Operations Center communications between the central OC node and its
Collector appliances. Among the enhancements are: improved delivery of collected configurations and job
execution logs from Collector appliances to the Operations Center; improved stream processing for multiple
simultaneous updates from Collectors to the OC; improved exception handling; and improvements to job
logging.

NetMRI 7.0.5 Release Notes


Additional Changes for 7.0.1 Release

Existing customers will see the following changes in their NetMRI deployment after an upgrade to Release 7.0.1:

A special setting has been added to Advanced Settings -> Configuration Management -> Config Syslog
Change Filter Username to provide special handling for configuration changes detected based on syslog
events. Up to five comma-separated user names can be defined in that setting. If a syslog event
matches one of those user-names, then it will bypass the configuration difference notifications and
policy triggers that would otherwise be invoked. This can be used in cases where an automated process
with a named automation user takes configuration actions such as bringing ports up and down, or
changing VLANs. In the case of frequent expected activity of this nature, the follow-on reporting of
change events often becomes overwhelming and unnecessary.

The ghosted/greyed out Security Control tab is removed. Customers with existing Security Control
feature licenses will retain their feature set. Documentation on this remains available through Infoblox
Support.

Specific VRF collection state information is added to the Device Viewer -> Settings & Status -> Device
Support -> under both the Data Collection and Device Support tabs.

A Device CLI Audit Log captures NetMRI CLI connections to network devices, including events from
processes such as config collection, credential collection, Job engine (including job approval identity),
and other CLI session connections. This is not exposed in the device viewer, or other readily available
form, but is available to support as a troubleshooting aide. This can be controlled under Advanced
Settings -> Notification with controls for disabling the logging (it is on by default), and the number of
days to retain the logs.

The API has been updated to version 3.0. Backwards compatibility has still been maintained wherever
possible, but there are some areas particularly for user administration that have been changed
significantly in this major release.

The NetMRI systems FQDN can be set within the advanced setting for use in Reports and Notifications.
Generated URLs in those documents will then use the FQDN, rather than IP address. This is useful if the
system is using https, and the certificate is registered only to the name.

Scripts that issue commands to devices can now override the expected response, changing it from the
expected prompt to something else temporarily. This is useful if the command issued results in a followon query, such as Are you sure (y/n)?

Deprecated and Obsolete features


This section describes features no longer supported in this release, or planned for removal in a future release.
These features are ones that have not been adopted by customers, or were for specific cases in the past. Since
NetMRI contains such a rich feature set, these items are being trimmed to ensure that the focus is placed on
improving features that are in use, and adding new features in areas where use cases are growing.

Deprecated Features
The following existing features are deprecated. Testing of these features was skipped during release
qualification. The code remains unchanged, but may be removed in a future release. Customer cases resulting
from bugs found in these features will be handled on a case-by-case basis, but in general, will not be acted
upon.

LIMITATIONS OF 7.0.x SOFTWARE


Inbound TFTP/HTTP File Transfers from VRF-Aware Devices

NetMRI provides Config Template and Rollback features, in which the involved devices initiate the file transfer
connections. Due to the adoption of Network Views in 6.9.x, a device that starts a connection to NetMRI needs
to specify the interface it has present in the correct network view. However, this is not consistently possible on
supported VRF-aware devices. WORKAROUND: TFTP/HTTP file transfers on VRF-aware devices will work when
the NetMRI manages the device on the devices default VRF; when the devices Management IP address is on an
interface in the devices default VRF (such as (default)IOS for Cisco IOS, default for Nexus and master for
JunOS). If NetMRI cannot reach the VRF-aware device through the devices default VRF, this feature will not be
available.
SNMP Credentials in Juniper VRFs

For discovery and periodic polling on Juniper devices through an interface that is not in the Juniper default VRF
(master), the query must use a special default@credential format. This setting assumes that users do not
have management interfaces in a VRF. Hence, the SNMP credentials for VRF-aware Juniper devices must use
syntax similar to: @vrfsnmp. Enter these values for SNMP credentials under Settings icon > Setup >
Credentials > SNMP v1/v2c tab. (When querying VRF-aware Juniper devices via an interface that is in the
default VRF, a plain community string can be used without the @ character.)

NetMRI 7.0.5 Release Notes


UPGRADE GUIDELINES
NetMRI 1102-A appliances do not support 7.0.x releases and cannot be upgraded to 7.0.x.
NetMRI systems (standalone or Operation Center) can be upgraded to 7.0.x starting from the following versions:
6.8.x (however testing has only been from 6.8.7 and 6.8.8), and 6.9.x.
The upgrade image file is ib_network_automation-v7.0.5.83982.gpg.
Data collection is shut down on Operations Centers during the 7.0.x upgrade. In Operations Center Controller-toCollector communications, all collected network data passes from the Collector to the Controller through a
tunnel connection. Tunnel connections are shut down during upgrades to 7.0.x releases.

Special Notes on Upgrading From pre-6.9.1 Releases (6.8.x)


While the upgrade can be performed from any version of 6.8.x, it is strongly recommended that the customer
start from 6.8.7 or 6.8.8 as there are significant changes in those releases, and that was the starting point for
testing.
Because there are very significant changes between 6.8 and 6.9, introducing configurations in support of VRF,
customers must read and follow the upgrade instructions in the 6.9.4 Release Notes. Those instructions are not
repeated here, but are still relevant in a 6.8- > 7.0 upgrade.

Upgrading From 6.9.x


You can directly apply the NetMRI 7.0.x upgrade to systems running NetMRI 6.9.x.
For customers with systems that do not connect to the Internet/AutoUpdate server, you will need to download
the upgrade image file and SCP it to the admin users directory on the appliance. Then run the standard
AutoUpdate utility from the NetMRI Admin Shell to perform the 7.0.x upgrade.

Special Note on External Authentication/ Authorization Services


If using external authentication over SSL, ensure it supports TLS 1.2, prior to upgrading NetMRI. A hotfix to
work around authentication servers that do not support TLS 1.2 is available, but not recommended.

Upgrade Sandbox Instances


Ensure that Sandboxes (either Local or Remote) are fully and properly upgraded (to the starting release version)
prior to starting an upgrade. If the sandbox is in an incorrect state prior to a follow-on upgrade, this may create
issues that are difficult to diagnose.

Local sandbox instances for NetMRI will be automatically upgraded.

Remote Sandbox instances (e.g., Sandbox instances on a VM server) must be manually upgraded using
the sandbox reset command from the admin shell. See the topics Using the NetMRI Sandbox and
Setting Up a Remote Sandbox in the online Help for more information.

Network Automation 7.0.3 Release Notes


KNOWN ISSUES FOR NETMRI RELEASE 7.0.5
The following items are notable bugs or potential improvements found by Infoblox, or reported by customers.
These are candidates for future maintenance or major releases. For information on specific tickets, please
contact support.
NETMRI-26557 Email notifications for some issues are sent multiple times once per each device component.
NETMRI-24981 For jobs of enormous size (e.g. 26000 devices) a lag occurred between when the job
completed, and when the job detail files for each device became available.
NETMRI-24806 - Device Viewer: include device's IP into filename when exporting data to CSV file.
NETMRI-24505 - Issues with CDS Download Tool related API calls, including the
get_extended_vendor_discovery_data call.
NETMRI-24292 - Routes not being successfully stored on NetMRI from Nexus 7K running v5.2.
NETMRI-24118 As an aid to troubleshooting, Switch Port Management collection settings need to be added to
the standard Logs package.
NETMRI-24079 - System Health DATZ001 alerts, indicating Collector appliances are in the wrong time zone,
appearing although the OC and all Collectors are configured in the same time zone and are using the same NTP
server.
NETMRI-23754 CLI Credentials page can appear as blank when multiple UsernameSecure/Password Secure
NULL entries exist.
NETMRI-23725 After creating Custom Fields of type "Date," they are subsequently displayed as "Date Time"
values having "00:00:00" as the time.
NETMRI-23435 Time Zone and NTP settings need to be synchronized to the local sandbox.
NETMRI-23425 - 'Configure server' does not allow specifying DNS servers per interface must be done via the UI.
NETMRI-22986 - Deleting a script results in no longer being able to view the job viewer for all jobs associated
with the script.
NETMRI-22570 Cannot select all interfaces on a device or for a device group when creating a report on
Interface History data.
NETMRI-22527 - Exporting a built-in HTML report to PDF where the content is divided into multiple pages, the
PDF retains the HTML page numbering.
NETMRI-22489 Applies only when multiple scan interfaces are being used in the deployment. In cases where a
hostname is specified under Tools -> Device -> Ping/Traceroute, the hostname is always resolved against the
DNS server of the MGMT interface, regardless of which Network View is selected. For systems with multiple scan
interfaces, this may result in incorrect or unexpected resolution if the MGMT interface DNS does not have an
entry for the host name, or if an entry exists that refers to another device on the MGMT network.
NETMRI-22455 Issue Subscription generates an incorrect SNMP Trap issue.
NETMRI-22454 Invalid JobID value in API Job_Update call causes no new jobs to be created or scheduled.
NETMRI-22446 After upgrading a single-network Operations Center to 6.9, the Network View name in the grids
may be different than the Network View name in the Settings -> Network Views table, showing the View name
as the network name of the Operations Center. This value is incorrect; the correct Network View name appears
in other locations in the NetMRI UI, including in Network Explorer -> Discovery. WORKAROUND: Open the
Settings -> Network Views page and re-name the network view to the correct value. After doing so, the Network
View names will be in sync.
