Configuring Address-Assignment Pools

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.

Note: You cannot use address-assignment pools with the J Series Services Routers DHCP server. Also, address-assignment pools are completely separate from L2TP address pools, which you create with the address-pool statement at the [edit access] hierarchy level, and NAT pools, which you create with the pool statement at the [edit services nat] hierarchy level.

To configure an address-assignment pool:

  1. Configure the address-assignment pool name and specify the addresses for the pool.

    See Configuring an Address-Assignment Pool Name and Addresses.

  2. (Optional) Configure named ranges (subsets) of addresses.

    See Configuring a Named Address Range for Dynamic Address Assignment.

  3. (Optional) Configure address-assignment pool linking and specify the secondary pool to use when the primary pool is fully allocated.

    See Configuring Address-Assignment Pool Linking.

  4. (Optional) Create static address bindings (IPv4 only).

    See Configuring Static Address Assignment.

  5. (Optional) Configure attributes for DHCP clients.

    See Configuring DHCP Client-Specific Attributes.

  6. (Optional) Specify that the address-assignment pool is used for router advertisement.

    See Configuring an Address-Assignment Pool for Router Advertisement.
