After you have discovered servers on the network and configured IPAM access settings, you can choose managed servers. Choosing a managed server is done by assign manageability status. If the automatic, GPO-based provisioning method is used, a manageability status of Managed means that the server will automatically be added to security filtering in the appropriate IPAM GPO. If the manual provisioning method is chosen, the manageability status of servers must still be selected to enable IPAM data collection and management functions.

Membership in the Administrators group, or equivalent, is the minimum required to complete this procedure. Review details about using the appropriate accounts and group memberships at Local and Domain Default Groups (
