Configuring IDs

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.

For most pool types, you can create new IDs when you create your pools or, later, as a separate step.

Note 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.
To create a new ID in an existing pool
  1. In the MCS left pane under Services, choose ID Management.

  2. Under ID Management, choose Configure IDs.

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


    From the toolbar, choose .

    When you choose New ID, a series of pages guides you through selecting options for your ID.

  4. In the New ID page, specify a Host Type, ID Name, ID Type, and Host Name for your ID.

    The host type you select determines the ID naming conventions and ID types available to you. For example, some hosts required hexadecimal values under ID Name. Regardless of the host type, the ID name you specify cannot include spaces or commas. If you select a UTS host type, the only ID Type available is Application.

    If you select Range, you can automatically generate a range of IDs based on the information you specify. You can pad the start value by prefixing additional zeros, for example, you could start with 00100.

    The remaining pages in this series depend on your selections in the New ID page. To get help on any page in the series, choose the Help button in the displayed page.
