How to connect to DDW servers.

If you added a DDW server to Address Manager but chose not to connect upon initial configuration, use the Connect function to have Address Manager manage the DDW server.

To connect to a DDW server:

  1. Select the My IPAM tab. From the configuration drop-down menu, select a configuration.
  2. Select the Servers tab. Tabs remember the page you last worked on, so select the Servers tab again to ensure you are working with the Configuration information page.
  3. Under Servers, click the name of a DDW server that is not managed by Address Manager. The Details tab for the server opens.
  4. Click the server name and select Connect. The Connect Server page opens.
  5. Under Server, confirm the Management Interface IP address, hostname, and password.
    • Name—enter a name for the server. This name is used only in the Address Manager user interface and is not associated with deployed DNS data.
    • IPv4 Address—the IPv4 address assigned to the server.
    • Hostname—the hostname used for the server on the network.
    • Password—enter the server password (by default, bluecat).
  6. Under Change Control, add comments to describe your changes. By default, this step is optional but might be set as a requirement.
  7. Click Connect.
