IDs assigned to a pool can be grouped into sets. By creating a set, you ensure that when a client receives one ID in a set, the second session the client opens will use another ID from the same set.
After an ID in a set has been allocated, IDs in the same set can be allocated only to the same client. If the client uses all the IDs in a set, the client can receive IDs from outside the set (either IDs in another set or IDs that aren't part of a set).
|Because IDs for directory service pools are dynamically created when requested and exist only while allocated, you cannot create ID sets for directory service pools.|

For example, you might want each client to use one terminal emulation ID and two host printing IDs, and each host printing ID should be used with a specific configuration. To accomplish this, you would begin by creating a named pool that contains all of the terminal emulation IDs and host printing IDs:
To ensure that each terminal emulation ID is always used with two specific host printing IDs, you would group them together in sets:
