To bring Windows DHCP data from a Windows server into Address Manager, you must perform an import operation.
- Add a DDW server to Address Manager.
- Add the Managed Windows server to Address Manager (in Read-Only mode).
- Create IPv4 parent blocks for every DHCP scope that you intend to import.
Parent IPv4 blocks must exist in Address Manager before you can import DHCP scopes from a Managed Windows server. If the parent block does not exist, Address Manager will not import the DHCP scope. If the parent block exists, Address Manager creates the network automatically as part the import process. For example, if you wanted to import a number of DHCP scopes in the 192.168.0.0 address space (such as 192.168.0/24, 192.168.1.0/24, and 192.168.2.0/24), you would first create a parent block such as 192.168.0.0/16. For complete details on creating IPv4 blocks, refer to Working with IPv4 blocks.
To import a DHCP configuration:
- 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.
- Under Servers, click a Managed Windows server. The server’s Details tab opens.
- Click the server name, then select Import. The Import Configuration Details page opens.
- Under General, select the Import DHCP configuration check box.
- Click Import. The server’s Details tab opens.
