Overview:

Networks are getting bigger and more complex, driven by the need for greater performance, BYOD, server virtualization, cloud migration, and smart devices. Meeting these challenges begins with managing your inventory of IP addresses and vital DHCP and DNS resources. SolarWinds IP Address Manager (IPAM) provides you with centralized IP address management that works hand-in-hand with unified DHCP and DNS administration. This means that teams can quickly find available addresses and easily configure them on virtually any DHCP and DNS system. IPAM also alerts you in advance of serious problems like address conflicts, poor performing DHCP/DNS servers, or full DHCP scopes.

Features:

IPv4 and IPv6 Address Management
IPAM actively identifies and manages IPv4 and IPv6 addresses and uses active scanning to discover and track subnets and associated address blocks. Finding an available address is as simple as navigating to a target subnet, viewing, and selecting an available IP address. Also, view transient IP addresses to easily identify orphaned IP addresses and reclaim them.

Integrated DHCP and DNS Configuration Management
IPAM works with your multi-vendor DHCP and DNS services—no additional proprietary software or hardware is required for management. You can easily unify and manage all of your Microsoft, Cisco and ISC open source DHCP and DNS servers (or any combination). All DHCP and DNS changes you make in IPAM are seamlessly propagated to the respective servers, enabling teams to easily find and configure IP addresses from a single management console.

Monitoring and Alerting
IPAM automatically and proactively detects IP address problems that can eventually lead to network disruption. You can continuously monitor and improve IP performance with proactive detection of IP address problems, notification of IP address changes in the network, and access to utilization data on essential metrics for planning. Active monitoring and alerting helps eliminate network downtime due to IP conflicts and non-availability of IP addresses due to full subnets.

Role-based Administration
IPAM lets you independently manage your DHCP, DNS, and IP subnets. Work independently of other admin teams with IPAM, allowing each team to manage their own subnets, address blocks, and DHCP and DNS services without impacting each other. Role-based administration helps maintain security without limiting delegation of IP address management activities.

IP Conflict Detection Resource
Quickly tend to IP conflict issues and avert network downtime. IPAM alerts you every time there is an IP conflict on the network. Integration with SolarWinds User Device Tracker (optional) lays out detailed device and switch port information that aids in troubleshooting. Historical data on IP address usage reveals which device had the IP first. Using the remote shutdown option, you can immediately cut off network connectivity of the problematic device.

Integrated End-Point Tracking
IPAM integrates with UDT to provide a single view of IP addresses and corresponding end-point connection/ location details. This enables improved troubleshooting and enhanced network access protection with port shutdown. Monitor suspicious activity in the network and track down rogue devices that are a threat to your network. When both IPAM and UDT are installed, IPAM displays corresponding switch port details and user information—all within the same integrated view. This lets you quickly track down and resolve network issues before they cause a major problem.

Global IP Address Search
IPAM tracks down a specific IP address on your network in just seconds by performing a global search. You can quickly and easily access IP address data to search for available IPs and meet IP requests.

Subnet Allocation Wizard
You can specify supernet and subnet sizes so IPAM can automatically allocate the correctly-sized subnet. Subnet Allocation Wizard helps you efficiently organize your managed IP address space into subnets that are sized appropriately for the extent and traffic of your network. With its real-time subnet calculator, the IPAM Subnet Allocation Wizard allows you to quickly determine the most efficient way to subdivide any supernet.

Microsoft Active Directory Integration
Leverage your existing Microsoft Active Directory user accounts to allow users to log in to SolarWinds IPAM. You save time on configuring and creating separate logins for IPAM.

Automated IPv4 Subnet Discovery
SolarWinds IPAM helps you create an up-to date IP address map of your network by directly pulling data from router configurations and connected machines. The Automatic Subnet Discovery uses SNMP credentials for polling devices and discovers subnets from the routing table of the router.

Automated IP Address Scanning
IPAM allows you to easily set up scheduled, automatic scanning for both your IPv4 and IPv6 address space. Reduce manual errors and ensure that your network’s IP address information is always up to date. Scheduled IP address scanning also helps you avoid IP address conflicts by recognizing transient IP status.

DHCP Split Scope Functionality
IPAM gives you quick and easy DHCP split scope configuration for high-availability and load-balancing of your critical DHCP services. IPAM allows you to quickly configure your DHCP split scope with a simple two-step wizard. Additionally, the centralized Web console offers visibility into related scopes and scope distribution across subnets.

Advanced DHCP Configuration Options
IPAM allows you to directly configure standard DHCP options for your multi-vendor DHCP servers without having to log in to the DHCP server or deal with complicated CLI commands. The changes are automatically synced to the respective server, which saves you a lot of time on configuration and troubleshooting issues caused by human errors. IPAM offers DHCP configuration support for remote-boot devices.

DNS Record Mismatch Detection, A & PTR Record Pairing
IPAM automatically detects and points out any mismatch in DNS forward and reverse record entries. Any disparity in the record is highlighted for easy identification so that it can be quickly fixed. Additionally, you can automatically create DNS PTR records when registering new devices into DNS zones. This helps ensure that there are no DNS record mismatches and also the possibility of DNS issues due to human error.

Detailed Event Recording
IPAM automatically records all IP-related events and keeps a detailed activity log showing what changed and when for quick and easy troubleshooting. You can greatly reduce troubleshooting time by using these detailed activity logs to retrace events leading up to IP conflicts and other IP related issues.

Customizable Dashboard
IPAM provides a customizable dashboard that delivers the essential information you need in a unified, ata-glance view for streamlined management and quick troubleshooting. IPAM’s customizable dashboard includes resources like Top 10 data, recent events, IP conflict monitor, and so on. The IPAM dashboard also integrates with other SolarWinds management products including Network Performance Monitor, Server & Application Monitor, Network Configuration Manager, and more.
