The IPAM DHCP and DNS Management view

With the 2020.2 release of IPAM, an improved, updated version of the DHCP & DNS Management page is displayed by default.

 

To toggle between new and legacy versions of the DHCP & DNS Management page, see Switch between versions.

This page allows you to navigate through various tabs to manage your DHCP servers and scopes, and DNS servers and zones.

The DHCP & DNS Management page is divided into two panes.

The left pane provides filters (depending on the selected tab) that enable you to narrow down the items displayed. Expand each filter to show the categories within the filter type. Categories for which no items are displayed are hidden.

The right pane provides one of four views, selected by clicking the links on the menu bar:

  • DHCP Servers
  • DHCP Scopes
  • DNS Servers
  • DNS Zones

The columns displayed for these views can be edited by clicking the icon next to the search box. Select the columns to be displayed (and uncheck those to be hidden), and click Update Columns.
