How to edit DDW servers.

While a DDW server is enabled, you can edit its name, hostname, and Server Authentication Credentials. While it is disabled, you can edit its name, Management address, and Server Authentication Credentials.

To edit 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 click the Servers tab again to ensure you are working with the Configuration information page.
  3. Under Servers, click a DDW server. The server’s Details tab opens.
  4. Click the server name, and then select Edit. The Edit Server page opens.
  5. Under Server, edit the following:
    • Name—edit the name of the server. This name is used only in the Address Manager user interface and is not associated with deployed DNS data.
    • IPv4 Address—edit the IPv4 address of the Windows server on which you installed the DDW software (can only be edited when DDW server is disabled).
    • Hostname—enter the host name used for the server on the network (can only be edited when DDW server is disabled).
    • Location(Optional) select a location from the drop-down menu on which the server object that you are adding or editing will be based.
  6. Under Server Authentication Credentials, edit the domain name, user name, and password of a user account that has sufficient permissions to manage Windows DNS and DHCP.
    • Domain Name—edit the name of the domain to which this account belongs.
    • Username—edit the name of the account.
    • Password—edit the password for the account.
  7. Under Change Control, add comments to describe your changes. By default, this step is optional but might be set as a requirement.
  8. Click Update.
