Follow me and learn Windows Server 2012 – IP Address Management (IPAM)

Hi, its Bruce again, Day 19 – Wow so much to learn! Tonight I am learning IP Address Management (IPAM). IPAM is a new feature that allows us to manage DHCP and DNS servers centrally. Here are some facts I learned about IPAM

  • IPAM provides centralized configuration and update of MS DHCP/DNS servers
  • Automatic discovery of DC, DHCP and DNS servers, and dynamic IP addresses in use
  • Organize, assign, monitor and manage static and dynamic IPv4/v6 addresses
  • Track and audit changes and provide real-time view of status
  • Monitor DNS zone health
  • The ability to Manage DHCP scopes properties on multiple scopes at the same time
  • Find and replace DHCP properties values on multiple scopes at the same time
  • Integration with ADDS
  • IPAM has PowerShell interfaces
  • SCVMM Integration

Below are some links to help you learn about this great new feature!
