The following procedure creates a new supernet for organizing your network components.

To create a new network supernet:

  1. Click IP Address Manager in the Menu bar.
  2. Click Manage Subnets & IP Addresses.
  3. In the network tree pane on the left, click the network, supernet, or group into which you want to add your new supernet.
  4. Click Add > Supernet.
  5. Provide an appropriate Supernet Name for your new subnet.

    If you leave this field empty, Orion IPAM automatically generates a name based on the Supernet Address and CIDR prefix length you provide.

  6. Provide a new Supernet Address and an appropriate CIDR prefix length for the new subnet.

    Orion IPAM instantly confirms the validity of provided Supernet Address and CIDR prefix length combinations. For more information about CIDR and supernet addressing, see Networking Concepts and Terminology.

  7. If you want to further identify your new supernet, provide a Description for the new supernet.
  8. If you have already defined any custom fields for supernets, provide appropriate values in the available custom fields. For more information about configuring custom fields in Orion IPAM, see Creating and Configuring Custom Fields.
  9. When you have completed configuring your new supernet, click Save.

You can now drag and drop your new supernet into other groups and supernets and drag and drop other supernets and subnets into your new supernet to organize your network.
