Add a DHCP server to manage scopes and IP address leases. A scope is a range of IP addresses that the DHCP server leases to clients on a subnet.

  1. Navigate to Settings > All Settings.
  2. Click IPAM Settings in the Product Specific Settings section.
  3. Click Add DHCP Server in the DHCP & DNS Management section.
  4. Select the required server from the Choose DHCP Server drop-down menu.

  5. Select a credential type, and enter the credential details.
  6. Click Test. If the credential are valid for the selected server the Test Successful message will be displayed.

  7. Select your default DHCP Server Scan Settings, and click Add DHCP Server.

    The DHCP Server is added to the DHCP & DNS Management page, and IPAM begins scanning it for IP address and scope lease activity.
