NetIM Virtual Edition

Riverbed® NetIM version 2.x represents NetIM’s next generation and a major change from previous releases in terms of scalability, software architecture and deployment. 


For customers utilizing the Riverbed "Portal" connected to NetIM 2.8 (with password expiration default equal to 90 days), it is crucial to change passwords before the 90-day expiry and ensure the updated password is reflected in the Portal. Failure to do so may result in loss of connection between the Portal and NetIM. For detailed instructions on changing an account's password expiration settings, please look at Knowledge Base Article S38111.


NetIM 2.8.0 is available for the following hypervisors: VMware ESXi 7.0 and 8.0, Microsoft Hyper-V 2019 and 2022, and Nutanix AOS 6.5.2 LTS (AHV version 20220304.342). Images for installation in Azure and Amazon Web Services are also available.

Due to the installation of Ubuntu updates in the NetIM 2.8.0 ISO Updates, all NetIM VMs will be rebooted as part of the ISO Update process. Please plan accordingly and request appropriate permissions in your organization. The NetIM ISO Update includes parallel update capability across multiple workers and data managers simultaneously.

Due to major version upgrade of the Ubuntu OS and PostgreSQL service, the ISO update might require more time than previous upgrades. Before updating to NetIM 2.8.0, thoroughly review the System Requirements and ISO_Update_Guide documents. If you plan to migrate from NetIM 1.x, review Migrating to NetIM 2.8.0.
