Configure IP address management (IPAM)

ADM IPAM provides you an ability to auto-assign and release IP addresses in ADM managed configurations. You can assign IPs from networks or IP ranges defined using the following IP providers:

  • ADM built-in IPAM provider.
  • Infoblox IPAM solution. For more information, see Infoblox DDI.

Currently, you can use ADM IPAM in:

  • StyleBooks: Auto-Allocate IPs to virtual servers when you create configurations.
  • Kubernetes Ingress: Auto-assign a virtual IP address to an Ingress configuration in a Kubernetes cluster.

You can also track the allocated and available IP addresses in each network or IP range managed by ADM.

Add an external IP address provider

ADM has a built-in IPAM provider to manage IPs and IP ranges. You can also add an external IP address provider to ADM.

Important

Before you begin, ensure the following permissions are enabled in the external IP address provider:

  1. Ability to query networks that are present in the provider.
  2. Register a new network.
  3. Unregister an existing network.
  4. Reserve an IP address in the network.
  5. Free an IP address from the network.
  6. Retrieve the used IP addresses from a network.
  7. Retrieve available IP addresses from a network.

Perform the following steps to add an external IP provider solution in ADM:

  1. Navigate to Networks > IPAM.

  2. In Providers, click Add.

  3. Specify the following details to add an IP provider:

    • Name - Specify the IP provider name to use in ADM.

    • Vendor - Select an IPAM vendor from the list.

    • URL - Specify the URL of the IPAM solution that assigns IP addresses in an ADM environment. Ensure to specify the URL in the following format:

       https://<host name>
      

      Example: https://myinfoblox.com

    • User Name - Specify the user name to log in to the IPAM solution.

    • Password - Specify the password to log in to the IPAM solution.

  4. Click Add.

Add a network

Add a network to use IPAM with ADM managed configurations.

  1. Navigate to Networks > IPAM.

  2. In Networks, click Add.

  3. Specify the following details:

    • Network Name - Specify the network name to identify the network in ADM.

    • Provider - Select the provider from the list.

      This list displays the providers added in ADM.

    • Network Type - Select IP range or CIDR from the list based on your requirement.

    • Network Value - Specify the network value.

      Note

      ADM IPAM supports only IPv4 addresses.

      For IP range, specify the network value in the following format:

       <first-IP-address>-<last-IP-address>
      

      Example:

       10.0.0.20-10.0.0.100
      

      For CIDR, specify the network value in the following format:

       <IP-address>/<subnet-mask>
      

      Example:

       10.70.124.0/24
      
  4. Click Create.
