Recording default gatey for a network in IPAM?

Hi,

I have a question around recording default gateways within IPAM that I was hoping somebody might be able to help with. Currently we don’t record anything in IPAM for the default gateway of a Network. We have been talking about just having a record for the IP address of the default gateway set to 'Default Gateway' on each network but not sure if this is the best way of doing this.

Is there a recommended or popular way of recording the default gateway for a network in IPAM?

Thanks,

Steve

Well, one thing you could do is configure the default gateway as a router entry in the IPV4 DHCP Options tab of the network. This way if you ever convert this to a DHCP network, it will automatically pass the field to DHCP clients for use. 

 

I suppose it also comes down to what you mean by "recording default gateways". If nothing else, just add a new EA and record the default gateway as a separate column if you purely wanted to see it for administrative reasons.
