More About This Title IP Address Management: Principles and Practice
IPAM applies management disciplines to these core services, including configuration, change control, auditing, reporting and so on, and they are necessary given the absolute requirement for properly managing IP space and DHCP and DNS servers. The linkages among an IP address plan, DHCP server configuration and DNS server configuration are inseparable; a change of an IP address will affect DNS information and perhaps DHCP as well. These functions provide the foundation for today's converged services IP networks, so they need to be managed using a rigorous approach.
Today, there is no single book that covers the management of these linkages and services they provide; IP Address Management Principles and Practice will fill that gap. While several books are available for leading vendors' DHCP and DNS services implementations, few exist for IP address planning, and none exist that unifies these three topics.

"This guide to Internet Protocol address management (IPAM) presents a practical, technical overview of each part of the IP environment and provides advice on best practices for creating an effective, integrated management plan . . . the work includes numerous illustrations and code examples and would be appropriate for advanced computer science students as well as network administrators and designers. Rooney is an IPAM expert and senior director for an IPAM consulting firm." (Booknews, 1 April 2011)
