IPAM 2012 R2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Microsoft,

    We have installed new windows server 2012 R2 which we will use for IPAM. Now my question is about provisioning. I know that default is gpo but there is also Manual. Can someone tell me why or shall we use manual?

  • Hi, 
    If at all possible, if you have the ability to deploy this using group policy, please do so, because the steps you have to go through to actually make the connections manually are really, really complex. I would never recommend manual provisioning. Manual provisioning requires you configure each managed server manually and there is a very big possiblility that you will get a lot of errors while configuring this. Use manual only if you have very special requirements.

  • Hi Nedim,

    Thanks, I was just curious about manual because we have 2 provisioning methods. Do you know the difference or how this unamanged to managed, blocked, unblocked works?

  • Hi Nedim,

    We done gpo provisioning but our servers are still unmanaged with red X. Do you know if there is any timer or something which decide when they will be managed?
