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.

Edit IP Address Window

The Edit IP Address window gives you the opportunity to provide specific details about a selected IP address, including your scanning preference and hardware information for the device to which the selected IP address is assigned.

The Status field provides the following four options to describe the availability of the IP address:

  • Available IP addresses are currently unassigned to any network device.
  • Reserved IP addresses are typically located in blocks both at the beginning and at the end of any selected subnet. Reserved addresses may not be assigned to any network device.
  • Transient IP addresses are typically associated with mobile devices that do not necessarily maintain continuous connection to the network.
  • Used IP addresses are currently assigned to a network device. As such, they may not be assigned to any other network device without first terminating their assignment to the first device.

  • Static addresses will allow values to be overwritten.-
  • Dynamic  values will be overwritten (updated by the scanning engine)
  • DNS will be overwritten if forward lookup does not resolve.
  • IPv6 Address is used for dual Stack devices.
  • You can choose a DNS zone to be associated with a subnet. This selected DNS zone acts like a filter, therefore DNS records which are not from the selected zone are shown as gray.
