We've just completed a project where we've solidified our IP address inventory using IPAM, including the use of IPAM custom fields to categorize things like server SLAs, staff/department patching responsibilities, etc.
Can this data be referenced in the other modules? Is there even a linkage between a node in NPM and the corresponding record in IPAM with the same IP, DNS name & MAC address? We'd like to be able to unmanage certain groups of servers/nodes during different maintenance periods (defined by the respective SLAs) and would love to reuse the existing data from IPAM.
Worst case I know we can create new custom fields in NPM and manually copy the data from IPAM but we'd like to avoid that redundancy.
Thanks in advance.
