Description

The Invoke-IpamServerProvisioning cmdlet installs and configures IP Address Management (IPAM) server components on the host on which you run the cmdlet. When you run the cmdlet locally on IPAM server or remotely from an RSAT, the cmdlet installs and configures IPAM components on the IPAM server to which the session is connected. As a part of installation, the cmdlet performs the following functions:

1. Configures the WCF and WSMan settings, such as Port and App Pool configuration.

2. Creates and connects to an IPAM database. The cmdlet attempts to create a database by using authentication credentials that the user specifies. An error occurs if the database that you specify does not exist or the chosen credentials do not include permissions to create a database.

3. Creates IPAM Tasks to get data for IPAM views.

4. Creates default user roles for access control. This includes RBAC roles in the database and any local security groups.

5. Configures a provisioning method.

6. By default, the cmdlet enables all available IPAM optional capabilities.

You can choose to manually or automatically provision access to managed servers. If you provisioned the managed servers by using group policy, make sure to create the corresponding GPOs in every managed domain by using the Invoke-IpamGpoProvisioning cmdlet.

Examples

Example 1: Provision an IPAM server

PS C:\> Invoke-IpamServerProvisioning
This cmdlet will provision IPAM on ipam1.contoso.com. As a part of provisioning, this cmdlet will provision IPAM to use Windows Internal database. 
The cmdlet will create a new IPAM database at %WINDIR%\System32\IPAM\Database, create roles, and prepare IPAM for use. 
Infrastructure servers managed by IPAM will have to be manually provisioned to provide access to IPAM. Read the product documentation for details. 
Do you want to continue? Y

This command provisions an IPAM server with default settings. By default, IPAM server uses the Windows Internal Database. The database files are stored in the default location, %WINDIR%\System32\IPAM\Database. The managed servers are provisioned manually by default.

Example 2: Provision an IPAM server to use GPO-based provisioning

PS C:\> Invoke-IpamServerProvisioning -WidSchemaPath "D:\database" -ProvisioningMethod Automatic -GpoPrefix IPAM1
This cmdlet will provision IPAM on ipam1.contoso.com. As a part of provisioning, this cmdlet will provision IPAM to use Windows Internal database. 
The cmdlet will create a new IPAM database at D:\database, create roles, and prepare IPAM for use. 
IPAM will be configured to use Group Policy to provision the managed servers. Read the product documentation for details. 
Do you want to continue?Y

This command provisions an IPAM server to use the Windows Internal Database and a GPO-based provisioning method for managed servers. The command stores the database files at a custom location.

Example 3: Provision an IPAM server to use Microsoft SQL Server

PS C:\> Invoke-IpamServerProvisioning -DatabaseServer "Db1.Contoso.com" -DatabaseName "Ipamdb" -DatabasePort 1433
This cmdlet will provision IPAM on ipam1.Contoso.com. As a part of provisioning, this cmdlet will provision IPAM to use Microsoft SQL Server on Db1.Contoso.com. 
The cmdlet will create a new IPAM database, create roles, and prepare IPAM for use. 
Infrastructure servers managed by IPAM will have to be manually provisioned to provide access to IPAM. Read the product documentation for details. 
Do you want to continue?

This command provisions an IPAM server to use a Microsoft SQL Server database residing on a database server named Db1.Contoso.com. The example assumes the existence of a server named Db1.Contoso.com, configured with Microsoft SQL Server, an empty database instance named Ipamdb, and the IPAM computer has access permissions for that database instance.

Example 4: Provision an IPAM server to use a Microsoft SQL Server database provisioned by IPAM

PS C:\> $Credential = Get-Credential
PS C:\> Invoke-IpamServerProvisioning -DatabaseServer "Db1.Contoso.com" -DatabaseName "Ipamdb" -DatabasePort 1433 -ProvisioningMethod Automatic -GpoPrefix IPAM1 -DatabaseAuthType SQL -DatabaseCredential $Credential
This cmdlet will provision IPAM on ipam1.contoso.com. As a part of provisioning, this cmdlet will provision IPAM to use Microsoft SQL Server on db1.contoso.com. 
The cmdlet will create a new IPAM database, create roles, and prepare IPAM for use. 
IPAM will be configured to use Group Policy to provision the managed servers. Read the product documentation for details. 
Do you want to continue?

The first command uses the Get-Credential cmdlet to get a credential, and stores the results in the $Credential variable.

The second command provisions an IPAM server to use a Microsoft SQL Server database that resides on a database server named Db1.Contoso.com. The example assumes the existence of a server named Db1.Contoso.com, configured with Microsoft SQL Server, a database instance will be created by IPAM during provisioning, and the IPAM computer has db_datawriter, db_datareader, db_ddladmin, view database state, alter permissions on the database.

Required Parameters

-DatabaseName

Specifies the name of a SQL Server database. The IPAM server connects to this database.

Type:String
Position:2
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-DatabasePort

Specifies the port that the IPAM server uses to connect to the database server.

Type:UInt16
Position:3
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-DatabaseServer

Specifies the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) or IP address of the database server.. You can provide an IPv4 or IPv6 address, or a fully qualified domain name (FQDN).

Type:String
Position:1
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False

Optional Parameters

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete.

The cmdlet immediately returns an object that represents the job and then displays the command prompt. You can continue to work in the session while the job completes. To manage the job, use the *-Job cmdlets. To get the job results, use the Receive-Job cmdlet.

For more information about Windows PowerShell background jobs, see about_Jobs.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-CimSession

Runs the cmdlet in a remote session or on a remote computer. Enter a computer name or a session object, such as the output of a New-CimSession or Get-CimSession cmdlet. The default is the current session on the local computer.
