Configure Sessions to use ID Manager to Assign Terminal IDs
ID Manager configures and monitors a pool of resource IDs that a client can use to establish a host session. Resource IDs work in place of the required address or identifier for a particular terminal type. This eliminates the need to configure a terminal ID (GPID or LU) for each and every client. You can use ID Manager with 3270, 5250, UTS, ALC and T27 terminal emulation sessions.
When a session is configured to use ID Manager, the client obtains an ID before the session connects and then holds on to the ID throughout the session. When the session disconnects, the ID is returned to its pool. A different ID may be used the next time the session connects.
Use the following procedure to enable ID Manager for individual sessions. To enable ID Manager for one or more groups of users, see Customize the EXTRA! X-treme Installation.
