Using the Assignments page, you can change any IP address, DNS name, or address pool name. This can be a convenient way to reassign IDs from one computer to another, or from one group of users to another. However, you cannot change a user name. This can be done only by modifying the directory service.
|If you change or delete a user name by modifying the directory service, the corresponding change does not occur on the Assignments page. To assign IDs to the new user name, you must delete the original user name, and then create a new user name and assign IDs to that user name.
If you change the name of an address pool, you must also change the properties of each configuration that uses that address pool.
If an ID assigned to the name is currently allocated to a client when you change the name, the name changes on the ID Monitor page, and the session remains open and continues to use the allocated ID.
