Documentation forIP Address Manager
Managing IP addresses is a key capability of Hybrid Cloud Observability and is also available in a standalone module, IP Address Manager (IPAM). Hybrid Cloud Observability and IPAM are built on the self-hosted SolarWinds Platform.

Add BIND credentials

IPAM supports Linux-based BIND DNS Server monitoring and management. IPAM supports BIND version 8 and higher, although it is recommended you use BIND 9 as this supports commands for checking configuration syntax, which IPAM is able to use for configuration change validation during management operations. The BIND account specified within IPAM must be on the DHCP server and be DHCP users, DHCP administrators, or local administrators. If IPAM is not in the same BIND domain as the DHCP server, IPAM must have the identical account.

You can store BIND credentials for SolarWinds IPAM to access and scan your DHCP network devices. You can update credentials locally from the IPAM server or over an HTTPS connection.

The BIND account must have the interactive log in rights enabled for IPAM to log in.
