Chapter 2 Setting Up the ISC Services
Creating VLAN Pools
• Have created an access domain for the VLAN pool. See Creating Access Domains, page 2-4.
• Know the name of the access domain to which each VLAN pool will be allocated.
To have ISC automatically assign a VLAN to the links, perform the following steps.
Step 1 Choose Service Inventory.
Step 2 Choose Inventory and Connection Manager.
Step 3 Choose Resource Pools.
The Resource Pools window appears.
Step 4 Choose VLAN from the drop-down Pool Type list.
Step 5 Click Create.
The Create VLAN Pool window appears.
Step 6 Enter a VLAN Pool Start number.
Step 7 Enter a VLAN Pool Size number.
Step 8 If the correct access domain is not showing in the Access Domain field, click Select to the right of
Access Domain field.
The Access Domain for New VLAN Pool dialog box appears.
If the correct access domain is showing, continue with Step 9.
a. Choose an Access Domain Name by clicking the button in the Select column to the left of that
b. Click Select. The updated Create VLAN Pool window appears.
Step 9 Click Save.
The updated VLAN Resource Pools window appears.
Note The pool name is created automatically, using a combination of the provider name and the access domain
Note The Status field reads “Allocated” if you already filled in the Reserved VLANs information when you
created the access domain. If you did not fill in the Reserved VLANs information when you created the
access domain, the Status field reads “Available.” To allocate a VLAN pool, you must fill in the
corresponding VLAN information by editing the access domain. (See
Creating Access Domains,
page 2-4.) The VLAN pool status automatically sets to “Allocated” on the Resource Pools window when
you save your work.
Step 10 Repeat this procedure for each range you want to define within the VLAN.
