Installing IPAM on Windows Server 2016

Posted: January 15, 2017 in Windows Server

IPAM is used for planning, deploying, managing and monitoring of IP address infrastructure

  • IPAM discovers domain controllers, DHCP servers, and DNS servers in the domain(s)
  • Custom IP address space display, reporting, and management:
  • Audit of server configuration changes and tracking of IP address usage
  • Monitoring and management of DHCP and DNS services

Installing IPAM 

Install-WindowsFeature ipam -IncludeAllSubFeature -IncludeManagementTools

In Server manager click IPAM-Provision the IPAM server

The provisioning method is the process of enabling required permissions, files shares, and access settings on managed servers so that the IPAM server can communicate with them.

Using GPO is much simplier than manual provisioning (settings must be configured manually on each server monitored by IPAM)

Then click Configure server discovery

Although we specified GPO method,GPO won’t be created by wizard,instead,we need to create GPO’s manually (for IPAM server to be granted permission to manage the domain servers)

On IPAM server open PowerShell as Administrator (GPO prefix name we specified during setup earlier)

Invoke-IpamGpoProvisioning –Domain test.com –GpoPrefixName IPAM –IpamServerFqdn ipam.test.com -DelegatedGpoUser Administrator
