Integration with UDT and IPAM is available with UDT v 3.2 and IPAM v 4.3 and later. If you are running both products, the built-in integration provides a view of end-to-end mapping of an IP address to any connected user or device, along with the device port and connection details all in the same window. If you are running UDT v 3.2 and IPAM v 4.3 or later, no steps are needed for integrating the two products. IPAM automatically detects if UDT is installed and add UDT users and switch port colums to your IP address view. The following screenshot shows the display presented in the IPAM Manage Subnets & IP Address resource:
Integrating IPAM with UDT helps troubleshoot in the following ways:
IPAM can detect IP Address conflicts (both IP static and DHCP environments) and help you to troubleshoot the problem by simply drilling down to the actual switch port and shutting it down.
Once you see an IP Address conflict event or alert, click the IP or MAC address info in the alert message and it will take you to the IP Address Details view where you can see the MAC address assignment history.
If you determine you need to resolve the conflict on the spot, you can administratively shut down the port using UDT.
IP address conflicts trigger an event displaying the MAC addresses in conflict. The following screenshot shows example of what to look for:
IPAM displays the IP address history along with the MAC address of the IP address in conflict.
To shut down the conflicting port:
