IP subnets can now easily be shared between vRA deployments and alongside existing tools and devices without fear of IP conflict.

Quick Start Process

Define Men & Mice endpoint(s)
Define IPAM profile(s)
Apply to existing blueprints


  • Reserves unique IP address(es) and assigns to the VM NIC(s) based on IPAM profile(s)
  • Drives advanced Men & Mice features such as Device Custom Properties flexibly via the SovLabs Template Engine
  • Optional feature to skip IP addresses that are marked free within the IPAM system, but found to be in use on the network. Email notifications can also be configured so that admins can stay apprised when these scenarios occur.
  • IPAM profiles include basic IP information such as DNS and WINS configurations
  • IPAM profiles can be pinned to specific NIC numbers
  • IPAM profiles can span multiple networks, each consisting of a network name, subnet CIDR block and gateway address
  • IPAM profiles allow for a list of excluded IP addresses
  • IPAM profile fields can be dynamic, utilizing the SovLabs Template Engine
  • SovLabs Template Engine allows for static text in combination with dynamic content such as vRA custom properties and/or custom logic
  • IPAM configurations are interchangeable between endpoint providers; avoid lock-in by easily adding additional IPAM providers with other IPAM modules from SovLabs
  • Men & Mice endpoints can also be used with the SovLabs Men & Mice DNS module
  • SovLabs IPAM configurations may also be used with SovLabs network load balancer modules
