Checklist: Deploy IPAM Server > Install IPAM Server > Choose an IPAM Provisioning Method > Configure Server Discovery

After you complete selection of an IPAM provisioning method, you can configure server discovery. When you configure server discovery, you are defining the domains that the IPAM server can monitor and manage (also called the scope of discovery). An IPAM server can monitor and manage multiple domains as long as they are part of the same Active Directory forest as the IPAM server.

You can modify the scope of discovery at any time. For more information, see Getting Started with IPAM.

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 (
