address-book (System)


Hierarchy Level


Address book entries include any combination of IPv4 addresses, IPv6 addresses, DNS names, wildcard addresses, and address range. You define addresses and address sets in an address book and then use those addresses when configuring different features, such as security policies and NAT.

Specify the number of address books that user logical system administrators and primary logical system administrators can configure for their logical systems if the security profile is bound to the logical systems.

The primary administrator:

  • uses security profiles to provision logical systems with resources.

  • binds security profiles to user logical systems and the primary logical system.

  • can configure more than one security profile, specifying different amounts of resource allocations in various profiles.

Only the primary administrator can create security profiles and bind them to logical systems.


  • maximum amount—A maximum allowed quota. If a logical system requires more of a resource than its reserved amount allows, it can utilize resources configured for the global maximum amount if they are available—that is, if they are not allocated to other logical systems. The maximum allowed quota specifies the portion of the free global resources that the logical system can use. The maximum allowed quota does not guarantee that the amount specified for the resource in the security profile is available. Logical systems compete for global resources.

  • reserved amount—A reserved quota that guarantees that the resource amount specified is always available to the logical system.
