Add an autogenerated ID pool for MAC addresses, WWNs, or serial numbers

If you need additional ID pools, the appliance can automatically generate ID pools for MAC addresses, WWNs, and serial numbers. The appliance manages these ID pools to ensure that they are generated randomly and are unique across appliances.


Minimum required privileges: Network administrator (virtual MAC addresses and virtual WWNs), Infrastructure administrator (all ID types)

  1. From the main menu, select Settings.
  2. Click Edit in the Addresses and Identifiers panel.
  3. Click the Add auto-generated button associated with the type of address or identifier you want to modify.
  4. Click OK to accept the generated range of addresses; otherwise, click Regenerate to create a new range of addresses, and then click OK.
