Top 5 Reasons to Use Our IP Address Management Software

  • Centralized IP Address Management

    Centralized IP Address Management

    SolarWinds’ IP address management software helps you easily manage thousands of IP addresses and ensure that each new mobile or smart device, virtual server, server, or desktop has its own unique IP address. By using SolarWinds’ IP management software you can publish reliable IP address documentation and enable teams to complete projects faster and with greater accuracy.

    • Easily import your old spreadsheets
    • Active network scans to verify IP address status
    • Secure collaboration using permissioned access
    • IP address details (including user-defined fields) and history

    It’s time to retire your spreadsheets. It’s simply no longer feasible to use manual spreadsheets to track and manage IP addresses. Chances are that you already know this because you have lived first-hand through the pain of inadequate version controls and incomplete and outdated data. And worst of all, they simply don’t integrate well with your management practices. Plus, you know how fast you’ve been adding new devices to the network – and that trend is only expected to accelerate. It’s time to use SolarWinds® IP Address Manager (IPAM)!

    • Easily import your old spreadsheets
    • Search on any IP address to view status, history, and details
    • Active network scans to verify IP address status
    • Secure collaboration using permissioned access
    • Fully integrated with DHCP and DNS administration
    • Optional integration with SolarWinds User Device Tracker(UDT) to show device-level detail
    • Flexible addresses organization by geography, business unit, function, etc.
    • IP address details (including user-defined fields) and history

    IP Address Manager not only eliminates all of the frustration caused by spreadsheets, it also makes provisioning IP addresses much easier and more reliable. This means new projects are completed faster. Plus, if problems do occur, you have accurate documentation that you can reference fast. This helps keep the network running smoothly and makes more time available to spend on other important things.

  • Unified DHCP and DNS Administration

    Unified DHCP and DNS Administration

    SolarWinds’ IP management software helps automatically provision addresses on virtually any major DHCP and DNS platform. You’ll be able to easily unify and manage all of your Microsoft®, Cisco® and ISC Open Source DHCP and DNS servers (or any combination). Now teams can easily find and configure IP addresses from a single management console.

    • Unified GUI-based administration for Microsoft®, Cisco® and Internet Systems Consortium (ISC) open source DHCP and DNS
    • View and edit DHCP and DNS settings as part of the IP address record
    • Define and manage DHCP scopes, leases, and more
    • Support for advanced DHCP configuration settings
    • Define and manage DNS zones and records

    It’s simply too inefficient to manage each and every DHCP and DNS server one at a time when provisioning for or making IP address changes. There are too many changes involved with the creation and modification of subnets or creating and managing virtual servers alone. And if you’re using open source systems, then you really need something better than CLI! SolarWinds® IP Address Manager (IPAM) makes all of your DHCP and DNS servers behave as one single, well managed system. Plus, many changes are made automatically with seamless integration with centralized IP address management. Maybe your DHCP and DNS infrastructure is starting to underperform. SolarWinds IPAM can also help you consolidate and upgrade your DHCP and DNS infrastructure. Simply upgrade or replace systems to the platform of choice without learning new systems or reinventing your management processes.

    SolarWinds IPAM makes it easy to unify the administration and consolidation of DHCP and DNS servers into one unified and logical system, or onto the platform of your choice without experiencing disruptive upgrades or requiring expensive appliances or other costly options.

Must-Have IP Address Management Features

  • Automated IP Address Scanning

    Automated IP Address Scanning

    IP Address Manager allows you to easily set up scheduled, automatic scanning to reduce manual errors and ensure your network’s IP address information is always up-to-date.

    • Perform automated, scheduled IP address scanning with customizable intervals
    • Automatically scan all subnets, a group of subnets, or an individual subnet
    • Customize scans based on network needs
    • Get IP status even when ICMP and SNMP are disabled via neighboring device ARP table discovery

    SolarWinds® IP Address Manager (IPAM) allows you to perform automatic subnet scans at customized intervals suited to your network’s needs. Scan as frequently as every 10 minutes or as infrequently as every 7 days. Moreover, you can schedule each scan independently by subnet, in order to provide more efficient and effective scanning based on dynamic or static subnet needs.

    Scheduled IP address scanning also helps avoid IP address conflicts by recognizing transient IP status. For example, if a static IP goes offline during a maintenance update and is not reachable, IP Address Manager will configure that IP as transient to prevent other network engineers from assigning the IP address. You can configure the transient period for any number of consecutive days, up to a year. Upon a subsequent scan, if the network device returns online again, IP Address Manager will simply show its associated status as "used." With just a few clicks, you can easily modify a scheduled IP address scan to customize it for your particular scanning needs. IP Address Manager also makes it easy to create your own scan job from scratch. Each job performs a scan of network devices based on subnet.

    As part of the scheduled scan, IP Address Manager’s indirect discovery provides more complete information on the status of IPs you’re managing. By identifying neighboring device ARP tables, IP Address Manager provides IP status information, even when SNMP and ICMP are disabled or blocked.

Product FAQ

  • Q: Does SolarWinds IP Address Manager require SolarWinds Network Performance Manager (NPM)?

    A: No, SolarWinds IP Address Manager is now available as a stand-alone application and no longer requires an installation of SolarWinds NPM. IP Address Manager, however, still has the ability to fully integrate with SolarWinds NPM in order to provide a comprehensive view of network health and performance.

  • Q: How is SolarWinds IP Address Manager licensed?

    A: SolarWinds IP Address Manager is licensed based on the number of “used” (used, reserved and transient) IP addresses. For example, if your network has 20,000 IPs, but only 15,000 are “used”, then you could select the IP16000 license below. There are four license tiers to choose from to match the size of your network:

    • IPAM IP1000 (up to 1024 IPs or one /22)
    • IPAM IP4000 (up to 4096 IPs or one /20)
    • IPAM IP16000 (up to 16384 IPs or one /18)
    • IPAM IPX (Unlimited IPs)
