IP ranges objects in TeemIp represent sets of contiguous IP addresses that belong to a given subnet. Typically, IP ranges are used to reserved IP space for an application (like DHCP) or to group devices that share the same function (like printers).
|Organization||Foreign key to a(n) Organization||Yes|
|Usage||Foreign key to a(n) IP Range usage||No|
|DHCP Range||Yes or No||Yes|
|Note||Multiline character string||No|
|Requestor||Foreign key to a(n) Person||No|
|Allocation date||Date (year-month-day)||No|
|Subnet||Foreign key to a(n) Subnet||Yes|
|First IP of Range||IPv4 or IPv6 Address||Yes|
|Last IP of Range||IPv4 or IPv6 Address||Yes|
|Contacts||All the contacts for this IP Object|
|Documents||All the documents linked to this IP Object|
|DHCP Servers||List of DHCP servers attached to the range (see note)|
|Notifications||List of related notifications - Present if a notification trigger exists for that class|
|Registered IPs||IP addresses belonging to the IP range|
|History||History of all changes made to the IP range|
The IP Ranges shortcuts of the IP Management module on the explorer menu display all the IPv4 or IPv6 Ranges of the selected organization or all IPv4 or IPv6 ranges if no organization is selected.
The “Registered IPs” column gives the percentage of the IP Range that is already consumed by all the IPs within the range.
From the listing view, click on the “New…” menu to display the creation form.
An implicit but intuitive set of rules must be followed when an IP range is created:
From the list of ranges, select the one you'd like to consider. DHCP ranges may be associated to DHCP servers (of class Server or Virtual Machine):
From the detailed view of an IP Range, click on the “Modify” button.
The parameters that can be changed here are: Name, First and Last IPs, Usage, DHCP range, Note, Requestor as well as the lists of Contacts and Documents attached to the IP Range.
Next to standard actions, a set of specific actions can be applied to IP Ranges. These can be found in the “Other Actions” menu available from the details page.
These specific actions are described in below chapters.
The List & Pick IPs action simply lists, in numerical order, all the IP addresses hosted within an IP Range. It lists as well the free IP addresses and provides the possibility to directly register one of them.
All free IPs can be created by clicking the appropriate button. This will open a popup window where all IP details can be registered. If you don’t wish to proceed, the top right menus will lead you to your next page.
This function exports in a text format all IPs of a given subnet: IPs that are registered (regardless their status: allocated, reserved, released or unassigned) and IPs that are not registered and that don’t exit as an object in TeemIp data base.
Clicking on “Apply” will generate the list.
Next to the attributes of an IP address, additional information fields are exported with each IP address:
|Registered||yes / no||True if registered in data base|
|Id||Number||Id of object in data base|
