Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds IP Address Manager (IPAM)

I like to use the Solarwind IP Address Manager to discover all our IP addresses in different subnets, including AWS and Azure, even in an on-premise data center. The only challenge I found is that it's hard to move the existing group to another group. Other than that, I find it a good tool to have.
  • Easy to use
  • Centralize management of your IP inventory
  • IP Address Inventory
  • Moving existing group is a little bit of a challenge.
  • Avoid duplicated IP
  • SolarWinds IP Address Manager
GUI is very easy to handle.
Overall, SolarWinds support is not that great.
