IPAM 4.1 Release Notes

Release date: February 2, 2014

Congratulations on your purchase of SolarWinds IP Address Manager (IPAM). IPAM leverages an intuitive web interface to allow you to easily investigate IP address space issues and manage your DHCP and DNS servers. By continously scanning the network for IP address changes, 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.

New Features and Improvements in IPAM 4.1

IPAM 4.1 includes the following new features and improvements:

  • Support for ISC DHCP management and monitoring

    Create, edit, or remove DHCP subnets directly and update servers automatically via the IPAM web interface.

    Manage ISC DHCP subnet options, ranges, and pools.

    Monitor ISC shared subnet utilization.

    Monitor server status and availability and IP address static assignments within groups.

  • Support for management of standard DHCP scope options on Microsoft and Cisco DHCP servers

    Manage all RFC standard DHCP options through the IPAM web interface, including setting up VoIP options (66 and 67) on your DHCP scopes

    New UI for DHCP options management with data type validator and text translation of numeric value of each option (you don't have look into RFC doc.)

    Automatic detection of supported/unsupported options per DHCP vendor

  • Automatic DHCP scope option syncing between IPAM and your DHCP servers

If you install IPAM and NPM on the same server, NPM will need to be on version 10.5 or higher and any additional pollers and websites must also be upgraded accordingly.

Notes

  • SolarWinds does not recommend managing more than 3 million addresses per installation.
  • Prior to installation, ensure you first create a backup of your database.
  • Test the change in a lab environment that mimics your production environment.
  • If you need a temporary license to install an instance of the software in a lab, please download an evaluation copy of the latest software from our website. Evaluation copies come with a fully functional 30-day license.
