IPAM – Event Log Access Status: Blocked (DNS)

After letting IPAM do its discovery for 3 days the only problem I picked up was that the status below was still showing as blocked even though the firewall rules were adjusted and the IPAM server was part of the correct security groups.

IPAM Blocked

The data is refreshed once a day but I was manually refreshing it without success.

Seems to be a bug in IPAM as I added the IPAM server to the Administrators group in AD and all of a sudden everything was unblocked.

Hope it helps

    in each GPO change permission for computer account to be “Edit setting, delete, modify secuirty”.
    each gpo has the computer that will monitored by IPAM Server, ex: open IPAM_DC gpo in delegation tab it will contain computer accout for the DC, right click on it and choose “Edit setting, delete, modify secuirty” then go to IPAM server and refresh server status, it’s work for me.

    I doesn’t seem to be a too secure solution though…

      Yes that is correct, but at the time it was a solution.

    Everything was working for me except for the DHCP Audit Share access was blocked. After adding the IPAM server to my domain’s built in Administrator group i was able to resolve the issue. Also, to verify you are having this issue you can look at the even logs of the IPAM server and verify you are seeing an Event ID 10063 under IPAM>Admin Log file. You will see it only occurs when the IPAM Audit Tasks runs. You can run this process manually via the task scheduler console. It also runs after a reboot of the IPAM server. Thanks for the help
