Address Pool Management

Each managed device supports one or more client DHCPDynamic Host Configuration Protocol. A network protocol that enables a server to automatically assign an IP address to an IP-enabled device from a defined range of numbers configured for a given network.  pools; a pool of IP addresses that can be assigned to clients associated to that managed device, or to the node itself. In addition to the DHCPDynamic Host Configuration Protocol. A network protocol that enables a server to automatically assign an IP address to an IP-enabled device from a defined range of numbers configured for a given network.  pool, the Mobility Master also allows you to create separate pools of addresses a managed device can use to dynamically assign to its uplink VLANsVirtual Local Area Network. In computer networking, a single Layer 2 network may be partitioned to create multiple distinct broadcast domains, which are mutually isolated so that packets can only pass between them through one or more routers; such a domain is referred to as a Virtual Local Area Network, Virtual LAN, or VLAN., use for NATNetwork Address Translation. NAT is a method of remapping one IP address space into another by modifying network address information in Internet Protocol (IP) datagram packet headers while they are in transit across a traffic routing device. translation, or use to create a GREGeneric Routing Encapsulation. GRE is an IP encapsulation protocol that is used to transport packets over a network. tunnel to the Mobility Master. These address pools are pushed out to each managed node when it comes up on the network. If a managed node is removed from the master, the IP addresses allocated to that managed device can be reused and reassigned to a new managed node.

ArubaOS supports the following pool types:

Address Pool Management—When you create DHCPDynamic Host Configuration Protocol. A network protocol that enables a server to automatically assign an IP address to an IP-enabled device from a defined range of numbers configured for a given network.  pool for a configuration group, that pool defines a set of IP addresses that can be assigned to client associated to managed devices in that group.

Address Pool ManagementMobility Master must have a separate VLANVirtual Local Area Network. In computer networking, a single Layer 2 network may be partitioned to create multiple distinct broadcast domains, which are mutually isolated so that packets can only pass between them through one or more routers; such a domain is referred to as a Virtual Local Area Network, Virtual LAN, or VLAN. pool defined for each VLANVirtual Local Area Network. In computer networking, a single Layer 2 network may be partitioned to create multiple distinct broadcast domains, which are mutually isolated so that packets can only pass between them through one or more routers; such a domain is referred to as a Virtual Local Area Network, Virtual LAN, or VLAN. used by its managed device. A VLANVirtual Local Area Network. In computer networking, a single Layer 2 network may be partitioned to create multiple distinct broadcast domains, which are mutually isolated so that packets can only pass between them through one or more routers; such a domain is referred to as a Virtual Local Area Network, Virtual LAN, or VLAN. pool allocates a static, continuous block of multiple IP addresses to each managed device. The managed device acts as a DNSDomain Name System. A DNS server functions as a phone book for the intranet and Internet users. It converts human-readable computer host names into IP addresses and IP addresses into host names. It stores several records for a domain name such as an address 'A' record, name server (NS), and mail exchanger (MX) records. The Address 'A' record is the most important record that is stored in a DNS server, because it provides the required IP address for a network peripheral or element. proxy server and dynamically assign IP addresses from its allocated pool to each AP or client on the VLANVirtual Local Area Network.

Address Pool Management—The tunnel pool on a managed node defines a range of IP addresses that the managed node uses to create a GREGeneric Routing Encapsulation. GRE is an IP encapsulation protocol that is used to transport packets over a network. tunnel within the IPsecInternet Protocol security.

A network protocol that enables a server to automatically assign an IP address to an IP-enabled device from a defined range of numbers configured for a given network.  pool assigns a single tunnel IP address to each managed node.

Address Pool Management—Used by the managed device for source NATSource NAT changes the source address of the packets passing through the router. Source NAT is typically used when an internal (private) host initiates a session to an external (public) host. translation. You can use a NATNetwork Address Translation. NAT is a method of remapping one IP address space into another by modifying network address information in Internet Protocol (IP) datagram packet headers while they are in transit across a traffic routing device. pool to create a firewallFirewall is a network security system used for preventing unauthorized access to or from a private network. policy rule to perform NATNetwork Address Translation.

Address Pool Management—The VPNVirtual Private Network. VPN enables secure access to a corporate network when located remotely. It enables a computer to send and receive data across shared or public networks as if it were directly connected to the private network, while benefiting from the functionality, security, and management policies of the private network. This is done by establishing a virtual point-to-point connection through the use of dedicated connections, encryption, or a combination of the two. pool defines a group of IP addresses assigned to VPNVirtual Private Network.
