    Configuring Address-Assignment Pools (NSM Procedure)

    The address-assignment pool feature supports subscriber management functionality by enabling you to create address pools that can be shared by different client applications. An address-assignment pool can support either IPv4 address or IPv6 addresses. You cannot use the same pool for both types of address.

    To configure address assignment pools in NSM:

    1. In the NSM navigation tree, select Device Manager > Devices.
    2. Click the Device Tree tab, and then double-click the device to select it.
    3. Click the Configuration tab. In the configuration tree, expand Access.
    4. Select Address Assignment.
    5. Add or modify settings as specified in Table 1.
    6. Click one:
      • OK—Saves the changes.
      • Cancel—Cancels the modifications.
