Our guest speaker will be Greg Lindsay. Greg is a technical writer for the Windows Server Networking documentation team at Microsoft. The topic of his presentation is "IP Address Management (IPAM) in Windows Server 2012." IPAM in Windows Server 2012 Beta is a new built-in framework for discovering, monitoring, auditing, and managing the IP address space used on a corporate network. IPAM provides for administration and monitoring of servers running Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) and Domain Name Service (DNS). IPAM includes:
· DNS and DHCP server, zone, and scope discovery
· Custom IP address display, reporting, and management
· Audit of server configuration changes
· IP address tracking
· Monitoring and management of DHCP and DNS services
IPAM provides a single management platform for IP address administration on the network, replacing manual tools and scripts. IPAM also allows for optimized utilization and capacity planning, enables tracking and forecasting of IP address utilization, and provides reporting for forensics and change management.
