Use the control buttons to Hold, Release, or Reclaim one or more specific IDs.

  • Hold: Set an administrative Hold on the selected IDs. The ID Status changes to Free/Hold or Allocated/Hold.

    Any available (Free) IDs that are put on Hold will not be considered for allocation. If an ID is currently allocated, the client will be notified (during the next client heartbeat) that the ID should be returned.

  • Release: Release any of the selected IDs that are in Hold status. The ID Status changes to Free.

  • Reclaim: This button displays if a pool is expanded to show IDs. When reclaimed, any selected ID that is allocated is changed to unallocated status.

    CAUTION:Use the Reclaim option with caution. Reclaiming an ID that is still in use can lead to synchronization problems.

When you select items to Hold, Release, or Reclaim, you will see a message to confirm the action.
