Ip address mapping

IP Address Mapping

  • Enable Dimension to replace device IP addresses with a name in some Dimension Dashboards and reports.

  • Available for both dynamically addressed devices and devices with a static IP address.

  • Select Administration > IP Address Mapping.


Ip address mapping1

IP Address Mapping


Ip address mapping dynamic ip address resolution

IP Address Mapping — Dynamic IP Address Resolution

  • If the source IP address is a private address, as defined in RFC 1918, Dimension can send a reverse DNS request to its name server and resolve the IP address to a name.

  • Provides name resolution for DHCP environments.

  • Requires the name server used by Dimension to provide reverse DNS lookups.

  • When enabled, Dimension replaces the private IP address for dynamically addressed devices with the name the DNS server returns. This name appears in some Dimension Dashboards and reports.


Ip address mapping dynamic ip address resolution1

IP Address Mapping — Dynamic IP Address Resolution

  • To enable dynamic IP address resolution:

    • Select Administration > Log Server Management > IP Address Mapping.

    • In the Dynamic IP Address Resolution section, click Configure and enable the feature.


Ip address mapping static ip address map

IP Address Mapping — Static IP Address Map

  • You can now manually create an IP address/name pair to replace a static IP address with a designated name in some Dimension Dashboards and reports.

  • Names can be host names or other descriptive names.

  • You can add IP address/name pairs for devices that are connected to Dimension and for devices that have not connected to Dimension.


Ip address mapping static ip address map1

IP Address Mapping — Static IP Address Map

  • Manually manage individual IP address/name pairs:

    • Select Administration > Log Server Management > IP Address Mapping.

    • In the Static IP Address Map section, add, edit, or remove IP address/name pairs in the Static IP Address Map list.


Ip address mapping static ip address map2

IP Address Mapping — Static IP Address Map

  • To add many IP address/name pairs to the Static IP Address Map list, import a CSV file that includes the pairs.

  • To modify the names assigned to any of the IP addresses in the list, export a CSV file of all the IP address/name pairs, change the names, and import the list again. The names are automatically updated.

  • You cannot change the IP address in any IP address/name pair. You must remove the pair and add a new pair with the correct IP address.

  • Reset the Static IP Address Map list to remove all IP address/name pairs from the list.

  • Changes to the Static IP Address Map list are committed automatically. You do not have to save changes to the page before they take effect.

  • Changes to the Static IP Address Map do not affect the settings for dynamic IP address resolution.


Ip address mapping reports for ip address mapping

IP Address Mapping — Reports for IP Address Mapping

  • The names that replace the IP addresses for dynamically addressed devices, and the names you specify for devices with static IP addresses, appear in some of the Dimension Dashboard pages and reports.
