Checklist: Deploy IPAM Server


Applies To: Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows Server 2012

Checklist: Deploy IPAM > Checklist: Deploy IPAM Server

This parent checklist includes cross-reference links to important concepts about deploying an IP address management (IPAM) server. It also contains links to subordinate checklists that will help you complete the required tasks.

Before completing the tasks in this checklist, ensure you have performed the prerequisite tasks in the parent checklist, such as reviewing conceptual information about IPAM and deciding on a deployment topology. The IPAM server that you deploy using procedures in this checklist can be a central IPAM server that monitors and manages several sites, or it can be a remote server that is responsible for managing a single site or a small number of sites. The role that is assigned to an IPAM server affects procedures in this checklist, such as configuring the scope of discovery and assigning the manageability status of discovered servers.


Complete the tasks in this checklist in order. When a reference link takes you to a conceptual topic or to a subordinate checklist, return to this topic after you review the conceptual topic or you complete the tasks in the subordinate checklist so that you can proceed with the remaining tasks in this checklist.
