    Managing Resources

    You can use the Manage Resource page to view existing IP address pools created for global use or for specific customers. Besides the IP address pool information, the status of various other resources such as VLAN IDs, virtual circuit IDs, route distinguisher, and route targets that are created for utilization in services is also displayed. You can also view the details of allocated or utilized resources, such as the VLAN ID allocated to the corresponding interface and the logical unit association with a particular interface on a device. For more information about creating an IPv4 IP address pool, see Creating an IP Address Pool.

    Viewing Resources

    Starting in Connectivity Services Director Release 2.1R1, you can view and manage a particular pool of resources by selecting an option from the Pool Type list. The Manage Resource page displays the list of resource pools that can be configured. You can filter the resources displayed on this page by device name, interfaces on the device, and a customer associated with the device.
