Network Management

The Network Management module is a mandatory module of TeemIp. It groups the CIs that are closely linked to network: existing ones that are inherited from iTop (Network interfaces and VLANs) and new ones available in TeemIp only (WAN links, DNS domains, AS numbers…).

Overview of all CIs that belong to the module are displayed under the Network group of the Overview menu of the Configuration Management module.

Network Interface

Three types of network interfaces can be defined: Fiber channel, physical or logical interfaces.

Creating a new Network Interface

In the Overview menu of the Configuration Management module, find the Network group and click on “Create a new Network Interface”. Then select the interface type in the form below:

Fiber Channel Interface

A Fibre Channel Interface, is a network interface to a high-speed network technology primarily used for connecting shared storage devices (Storage Systems in TeemIp).

Fiber Channel Interface Properties

Name Type Mandatory?
Name Alphanumeric string Yes
Device Foreign key to a(n) Datacenter Device Yes
Speed Decimal value (could be negative) No
Topology Alphanumeric string No
WWN Alphanumeric string No

Creating a new Fiber Channel Interface

Once Fiber Channel interface is selected in the interface type selection box, click apply to display the creation form:

Logical Interface

A network interface for a Virtual Machine.

Logical Interface Properties

Name Type Mandatory?
Name Alphanumeric string Yes
MAC address Formated alphanumeric string No
Comment Multiline character string No
Speed Decimal value (could be negative) No

MAC address can be entered following 01:23:45:67:89:ab or 01-23-45-67-89-ab or 0123.4567.89ab format but is displayed according to choice made in Global IP Settings for the organization.
TeemIp replaces the IP Address field that appears in iTop data model by a list of IPs that may contain several pointers to IPs defined in TeemIP data model. The list appears in the following tab.
IPs can be attached to an interface regardless their status, even already allocated. This is to reflect the situation where, for instance, an IP address is set on different router interfaces.

Tabs

Tab Description
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 logical interface can host.

Creating a new Logical Interface

Once Logical interface is selected in the interface type selection box, click apply to display the creation form:

Physical Interface

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

Physical Interface Properties

MAC address Formated alphanumeric string No
Comment Multiline character string No
Speed Decimal value (could be negative) No
MAC address can be entered following 01:23:45:67:89:ab or 01-23-45-67-89-ab or 0123.4567.89ab format but is displayed according to choice made in Global IP Settings for the organization.
TeemIp replaces the IP Address field that appears in iTop data model by a list of IPs that may contain several pointers to IPs defined in TeemIP data model. The list appears in the following tab.
IPs can be attached to an interface regardless their status, even if already allocated. This is to reflect the situation where, for instance, an IP address is set on different router interfaces.

Tabs

Tab Description
VLANs VLANs to which this interface is connected
VRFs VRFs to which this interface is connected
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 logical interface can host.

Creating a new Physical Interface

Once Physical interface is selected in the interface type selection box, click apply to display the creation form:

VLAN

A Virtual LAN is used to group together in a logical way networks Subnets and Physical Interfaces that participate in the same VLAN.

Creating a new Domain

In the Overview menu of the Configuration Management module, find the Network group and click on “Create a new Domain” to display the creation form:

Specific actions

Display Tree

The Display Tree action is visible when a list of domains is displayed.

This action is used to switch display from domain lists to trees. When no default organization is selected, a domain tree per existing organization is displayed. Otherwise, only the domain tree that corresponds to the selected organization is displayed.

Display List

The Display List action is visible when domain trees are displayed.

This action brings the display back to the standard list.

Delegate

A domain belonging to an organization can be delegated to another organization. This can only be done once the domain already exists. Delegation is not available at creation time. Conditions to delegate a domain are:

  • The domain doesn't contain any host nor sub-domain
  • The domain is not associated to a DNS zone.

By default, a domain can only be delegated to a child organization. However, this restriction can be lifted through the Global IP Settings.

In order to delegate a domain, click on the “Delegate” action of the “Other Actions” menu.

The following display appears:

If all delegation conditions are met, domain is effectively delegated once the “Apply” button is pressed.

Un-Delegate

A delegated domain can be returned to its original owner organization with the “Un-delegate” action. Condition to remove a delegation on a domain is that the domain has no host, no sub-domain and no zone associated zone.

In order to un-delegate a domain, just click on the “Un-delegate” action of the “Other Actions” menu. If above condition is met, delegation will be removed straight away.
