IP Plan

IP Plan Module

Since there are already IP Adresses saved in the CMDB (Hardware Objects), the IP Plan is a visualization for them. Most of the work for the IP Plan is done by the Agents on the Clients, which are fetching the required IP Information.

To start with the IP Plan, you have to enter your Subnets. Press Create Subnet in the Module IP Plan - Subnet. new subnet

Common Fields:

  • Subnet Name: e.g. Office, Home, Server, ...
  • Subnet: IPv4 Subnet like 192.168.1.0
  • CIDR: how many Bits are your subnet width? e.g. 24 Bits for a 255.25.255.0 Netmask
  • Default Gatway: Optional for the Visualization.

After you have entered the Subnet, you will see a overview of used IP Adresses in the subnet.

Example

Legend:

  • IP in Green: The hardware (IP Address) is online
  • IP in Blue: The Agent has reported the IP recently
  • IP in Gray: The hardware has been created manually. e.g. none Windows Machine
  • IP in Red: The hardware has been offline for a while. Probably the hardware doesn't exists any more. So don't trust the IP address since it could be outdated.
  • IP in Black: Default Gateway
  • Dark gray background: This IP is covered by a DHCP scope

DHCP Scope

Here you can enter DHCP Scopes. This information will be used in the IP Plan only for visualization. You can also exclude ranges.

Firewall

Here you can document your Firewall.

Firewall new rule Fields:

  • Source IP: external IP
  • Destination IP: internal IP
  • TCP Ports: Comma separated list of open Ports.

The information from the Firewall will be used in the Module IP Scan and in the IP Plan.

DNS

Here you can document your (public) DNS infrastructure. e.g. external Servers. This information is required for Cerfificate checks in case you are using the Module IP Scan. Also the DNS Information will be used for the IP Plan.

Subnet Values for Software Rollout

When creating subnets you have the possibility to add Configuration variables which can be referenced in some Job actions.

Subnet Configuration

To use the configuration variables, the following syntax must be used: $[Configuration name]

e.g.:


http://$nasip/$naspublicpath/install.exe
