Editing ID Pools

You can change some properties for previously created ID pools. The changes you make affect all IDs in the pool, although allocated IDs will continue to use previous values until they are released.

To change lease or inactivity timeout values
  1. In the MCS left pane under Services, choose ID Management.

  2. Under ID Management, choose Configure IDs.

  3. In the MCS right pane, select an existing pool from the tree, right-click to display the shortcut menu, and then choose Pool Properties.

    -or-

    From the toolbar, choose .

  4. In the Pool Properties dialog box, make changes as required.

    For information about options in the Pool Properties dialog box, click the Help button in the dialog box.

To rename a pool
  1. In the MCS left pane under Services, choose ID Management.

  2. Under ID Management, choose Configure IDs.

  3. In the MCS right pane, select an existing pool from the tree, right-click to display the shortcut menu, and then choose Pool Properties.

    -or-

    From the toolbar, choose .

  4. Under Pool Name, type a new pool name. Pool names cannot contain spaces. You cannot rename a pool that contains allocated IDs.

    Renaming a pool is a convenient way to reassign IDs (for example, from one user to another, or one group of computers to another). If you rename a pool in MCS, you may need to make a corresponding change in your client configuration.

To delete a pool
  1. In the MCS left pane under Services, choose ID Management.

  2. Under ID Management, choose Configure IDs.

  3. In the MCS right pane, select an existing pool, right-click to display the shortcut menu, and then choose Delete.

    -or-

    From the toolbar, choose .

  4. Choose Delete.

    You can delete a pool only if it contains no currently allocated IDs. When you delete a pool, all associated IDs are also deleted.
