Create ID Pools

The first step in setting up ID management is to create a pool of host access IDs.

To create a pool of IDs
  1. In the MCS left pane under Services, click ID Management.

  2. Under ID Management, click Configure IDs.

  3. In the MCS right pane, in the pool tree, select either All IDs or an existing pool type, right-click to display the shortcut menu, and click New Pool.

    The Pool Creation series of pages guides you through creating a new pool. For detailed information about options on any of these pages, including a description of each pool type, click Help.

  4. In the New Pool page under Pool Type, select Named Pool, and then type a name for your pool. Pool names cannot contain spaces.

  5. Set the pool lease and inactivity timeouts to zero (0).

    For more information about timeout values and reclaiming IDs, see the Monitoring Host Access ID Usage topic.

  6. Click Next to add IDs to the pool.
