    NEED TO STOP IPAM FROM RELEASING IP ADDRESS AUTOMATICALLY WHEN A HOST GOES INACTIVE/DOWN

    tmusha

       

      We are trying to use IPAM to manage our IP address. But we are having a huge problem. We are handing out static ip addresses andputting a lot of information about that ip address like the owner and what the

       

      ip address is being use for. When wefirst put the information in it is set up as reserved and it holds the

       

      information fine that way until the ip address goes active.


      Once the IP address goes active in the Solar Winds IPAM

       

      program and if for whatever reason the owner of the static ip address turns their

       

      host off for an X amount time, this IPAM program will set the IP address to available

       

      AND DELETE all of the information about the ip address. This is a huge problem for us. Because we use this program to hand out ip

       

      address out to folks. And when this program

       

      deletes all of the information and makes this IP Address available again we give out a duplicate ip address to someone

       

      else AND all of our information is lost.


      My question is how do you stop IPAM from automatically

       

      making an ip address available and deleting ALL of the information about that

       

      IP address?!


      Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
