Checklist: Deploy IPAM Client > Install RSAT > Install IPAM Client

IPAM Client is installed by default on the local computer when you install IPAM Server. IPAM Client is also available by default on a computer running Windows® 8 when you install the Remote Server Administration Tools (RSAT) for Windows 8. If you are using a remote computer running Windows Server® 2012 to connect to an IPAM server, use the following procedure to install IPAM Client.

Membership in the Administrators group, or equivalent, is the minimum required to complete this procedure. Review details about using the appropriate accounts and group memberships at Local and Domain Default Groups (

If the local computer is running Windows Server 2012, the local server is available in the server pool by default. If the local computer is running Windows 8, you must add at least one server to the pool that supports remote management.

If the IPAM Server computer is already available in the Server Manager server pool, you can skip the procedure below to add a server to the pool, and proceed directly to install IPAM Client. If the IPAM server is not currently available in the server pool, you can use the following basic procedure to add a server to the pool. For detailed information about adding servers to Server Manager, see Add Servers to Server Manager (
