    Importing Subnets

    Donald_Francis

      Is there anway to import subnets?

      IP tracker can do it just fine but I cannot see where to do it in IPAM???? 

      When you have thousands of subnets adding each one makes the software fairly useless.  I am getting much more from IP tracker at this point.

      Polling routers for subnets like Subnet List would also be nice but having one or the other would make it usable.

            This is from another blog on the forum

             

            The parameter after STOP and START need to be enclosed within double quotes (and not the ones Word replaces on you with).

             

            1.   Locate the Toolset IP Address Manager database on your Toolset server.

            Note: The Toolset IP Address Manager database has an .ipdb extension.

            2.   Copy the Toolset IP Address Manager database to an appropriate location on your Orion server.

            3.   Open the Command Prompt on your Orion server.

            Note:Typically, the command prompt may be opened by clicking Start > All Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt.

            4.   Enter CD <volume>:\Program Files\SolarWinds\Orion\IPAM.

            5.   Enter NET STOP "SolarWinds IPAM Information Service"

            6.   Enter SolarWinds.IPAM.Init.exe -import <Full path to your Toolset IP Address Manager database>.

            7.   Enter NET START "SolarWinds IPAM Information Service"

                That's a nifty trick.  Unfortunately, it doesn't help those of us that use something else besides IP Address Manager to track our subnet assignments.  I suppose one could import to IP Address Manager and then export out, but that's rather tedious.
