Reservation Rules


Under Options tab you can also find reservation rules option, when enabled it will automatically apply certain rules to IP list on subnet provisioning

When assigning whole IP list this option will automatically reserve IPs based on rules below. You can use 'n' and 'm' variables to define list starting & end points, example: 
- 'n+1' will reserve second ip 
- 'm' will reserve last ip
