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 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.

    • 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.

View allocated IP addresses

To view more details about allocated IP addresses from the IPAM network, do the following steps:

  1. Navigate to Networks > IPAM.

  2. In the Networks tab, click View All Allocated IPs.

    View allocated IPs

    This pane displays IP address, provider name, provider vendor, and description. It also displays the resource details that reserved this IP address:

    • Module: Displays the ADM module that reserves the IP address. For example, if the IP address is reserved by StyleBooks, this column displays StyleBooks as the module.

    • Resource Type: Displays the resource type in that module. For the StyleBooks module, only the configurations resource type uses the IPAM network.

    • Resource ID: Displays the resource ID with a link. Click this link to access the resource that uses the IP address. For the configuration resource type, the resource ID is displayed as the configuration pack ID.

Note

If you want to release the IP address, select the IP address that you want to release and click Release Allocated IPs.
