The status of any monitored IP address within a defined subnet may be set from the IP Address View on the Manage Subnets and IP Addresses page, as shown in the following procedure.

If a subnet contains more than 4096 IP addresses (lower than /20 or mask), Orion IPAM only displays IP addresses in previously added ranges. For these larger subnets, you must add IP address ranges for monitoring before Orion IPAM can display addresses that may be managed.

To set the status of an IP address within a defined subnet:

  1. Click IP Address Manager in the Menu bar.
  2. Click Manage Subnets & IP Addresses, and then click the subnet containing the IP address for which you want to set the status in the left tree pane.

    For subnets with more than 4096 IP addresses (lower than /20 or mask), the right pane displays No IP addresses have previously been added unless you have already added a range of IP addresses within the selected subnet.

  3. Check the IP addresses to modify in the right pane IP Address view.
  4. Click Set Status and then select Available, Reserved, Transient or Used
    • Available IP addresses are currently unassigned to any network device.
    • Reserved IP addresses are typically located in blocks both at the beginning and at the end of any selected subnet. Reserved addresses may not be assigned to any network device.
    • Transient IP addresses are typically associated with mobile devices that do not necessarily maintain continuous connection to the network.
    • Used IP addresses are currently assigned to a network device. As such, they may not be assigned to any other network device without first terminating their assignment to the first device.
    • You cannot manually set the status to API Blocked. This icon shows it is being modified by the IPAM API.
