CMDB Core

TeemIp's Configuration Management core module is iTop's mandatory Configuration Management module that has been slightly adapted to integrate with TeemIp' specific IP objects. For a comprehensive reference to that module, please, refer to the Configuration Management Core chapter in iTop wiki.

Here below is the list of iTop CIs that have been modified by TeemIp.

Functional CI

This is the root class from the datamodel where most CIs derive from. As an abstract class, it cannot be instanciated as such. Important point is that the class carries the method GetNameForIPAttribute where the shortname of the IP associated to the CI is defined. Furthermore, as the method is defined in XML, it can be overloaded to handle specific cases (like creating different name for the different IPs that a CI may have).

Network Device

Any type of network device: router, switch, hub, load balancer, firewall…

Network Device Properties

Only one attribute is affected by TeemIP.

Name Type Mandatory?
Management IP Foreign key to a(n) IPv4 or IPv6 Address No

Upon creation or modification, a management IP can be set as a foreign key to an IP address. A drop-down box will list a choice of available IP addresses.

  • Only addresses which status is released or unassigned (ie not allocated nor reserved) will be offered,
  • Status of IP is automatically changed when IP is attached to a device or server or removed from it,
  • If enabled through IP settings, CI name is copied into IP short name.

Server

A Server is typically used in iTop to document a physical server machine.

Server Properties

Only one attribute is affected by TeemIP.

Name Type Mandatory?
Management IP Foreign key to a(n) IPv4 or IPv6 Address No

Upon creation or modification, a management IP can be set as a foreign key to an IP address. A drop-down box will list a choice of available IP addresses.

  • Only addresses which status is released or unassigned (ie not allocated nor reserved) will be offered,
  • Status of IP is automatically changed when IP is attached to a device or server or removed from it,
  • If enabled through IP settings, CI name is copied into IP short name.

Physical Interfaces

A physical network interface on a physical server, as opposed to virtual interfaces that are defined at the software level either in operating systems or virtual machines.

Physical Interface Properties

TeemIp is removing the following attributes and is replacing them by a n:n relation with IP Addresses.:

  • IP address
  • IP gateway
  • IP mask

The attribute MAC address is replaced by one that supports multiple MAC address formats.

Tabs

IP addresses are visible through a dedicated tab.

Tab Description
VLANs VLANs that the interface is connected to
VRFs VRFs that the interface is connected to
IP Addresses IP Addresses (v4 or v6) that are hosted on the interface

There is no limitation in the number of IPv4s and / or IPv6s that a physical interface can host.

IPs can be attached to an interface regardless their status, even if it is already allocated. This is to reflect the situation where, for instance, an IP address is set on different router interfaces.

Connectable CI

A Connectable CI is an abstract class of CIs that groups all CIs that can be connected to an IP network. Such CI can host one or multiple physical interfaces.

Tabs

A computed tab has been added to connectable CIs.

Tab Description
Interfaces' IPs All IP addresses (v4 or v6) hosted by all physical interfaces attached to the CI

This allow you to have an overview on all IPs hosted by the CI.
