Host access IDs provide unique connection data for a session with a host. The type of connection data and available properties for an ID depend on the host type with which it will be used.
|Host type||Description||Connection data|
|3270||IBM Mainframe||3270E logical unit (LU)|
|5250||IBM AS/400||5250E logical unit (LU)|
|Apollo||Apollo Galileo Airline Reservation System||Client ID|
|Matip ALC||IBM TPF (MATIP)||Terminal address (TA)|
|Matip UTS||Unisys ClearPath IX or 2200 Series||T27 station ID (SID)|
|Sabre or Shares||EDS SHARES, AMADEUS, System One, or Sabre Airline Reservation System||LNIATA|
|T27||Unisys ClearPath LX/NX or A Series||T27 station ID|
|UTS||Unisys ClearPath IX or 2200 Series (INT1)||UTS terminal ID|
You can create new IDs when you create your pools or, later, as a separate step. For directory service pools, IDs are dynamically created as needed based on information you supply when you create a directory service pool. The New ID command is unavailable.
If they are not currently in use, you can edit ID properties, move IDs from one pool to another, and delete existing IDs. You cannot edit the properties of an allocated ID. Because IDs in directory service pools exist only while allocated, you cannot edit their properties.
Some ID properties, such as host mappings, are common to all ID types, while some properties vary, depending on the ID type.
|To create a new ID in an existing pool|
You can right-click an ID in the Configure IDs pane to display a shortcut menu from which you can edit ID properties, move, or delete IDs.
You can select more than one ID to move or delete but only IDs that are currently not allocated are affected. If the IDs are allocated but not actually in use, you may need to manually reclaim them. For information, see the topic Manually Reclaiming an ID.
