Windows Server 2012 Hosting - :: Import IP Address with IPAM into Windows Server 2012

clock November 21, 2013 07:17 by author Ben

IPAM leverages an intuitive point- and-click web interface to allow you to Easily investigate the IP address space issues . By scanning the network , IPAM maintains a dynamic list of IP addresses and Allows engineers to plan for network growth , Ensure IP space usage meets corporate standards , and reduce IP conflicts .

IPAM is an entirely new feature in Windows Server 2012 that provides highly customizable administrative and monitoring capabilities for the IP address on a corporate network infrastructure or IPAM is the new framework for finding , monitoring and managing it on a network .

IPAM is a feature of Windows Server 2012 and must be installed as such , either by using the Add Roles and Features Wizard or through PowerShell 3.0 and poorly documented in my opinion , making a useful feature harder to use and understand than it should be .

Even without formal organization IPAM applications keep track of their IP address information somehow - most typically in spreadsheets . IPAM lets you view IP address availability and configuration from a database perspective , enabling you to use your addresses more efficiently . IPAM features such as IP reconciliation and automation can Eliminate the need to use spreadsheets for tracking addresses .

IPAM is performed on a Microsoft network by an installable feature of Windows Server 2012 that you run on a domain member server to " watch and centrally manage " the other servers on your network that are actually doing the work . IPAM manages the functionality of the following Windows servers :

  • DHCP Service
  • DNS Server
  • Network Policy Server ( NPS )
  • Active Directory Domain Controller ( DC )

To do import IPAM , IPAM log on to your server and open Server Manager :

  • Click IPAM in far left pane of Server Manager .
  • In the IPAM client , select IP Address Blocks under IP ADDRESS SPACE , and the make sure that Current view is set to IP Addresses in the drop - down menu .
  • If you look along the top window , you will see the IP address listed along the top fields , such as IP Address and IP Address State . You can add or remove fields by right-clicking on one of the existing fields .

If you want to import and Assignment Type yhis information , you need to add these fields to the first line of your import file , without spaces , as shown below :

IPAddress , IPAddressState , AssignmentType , ManagedByService , ServiceInstance , AssetTag , In - Use , Static , IPAM , localhost , BR12 , In - Use , Static , IPAM , localhost , BR13 , In - Use , Static , IPAM , localhost , BR14 , In - Use , Static , IPAM , localhost , BR15

Alternatively , you can keep the spaces in the field names and enclose with quotation marks , for example , " IP Address" and " IP Address State " . The actual IP address of the data should then follow , comma delimited in the same order that you specified the fields as shown above .

Some fields , such as IP Address State , will require you to look and see what the options are valid input . To find out what the possible options are :

Click Tasks in the far right corner of this client and select Add IP Address from the menu .

Select the drop - down menu by the side of the field to see the possible options. For instance , the field can be set to In - Use , Inactive or Reserved .

Now we need to change the status of any discovered servers to Managed . To do this , right click a server in the Server Inventory screen and select Edit Server from the menu .

In the Add or Edit Server window , change the Manageability status to Managed and click OK . Right click the server again , and select Retrieve All Data Server from the menu . Repeat this procedure for all discovered servers . Now you are ready to add the IP addresses , ranges and blocks to IPAM .
