Network Status

When you get your IP addresses from a RIR, we say that you've been allocated a network. When you decide that a subnet of that block is to be used for a certain customer we talk about assigned address space. HaCi uses the RIPE model, and extends it to allow a network to have other values for the status field so as to simplify management of your address space and avoid collisions and double assignments, which are always bad.

Users that have address space from other RIRs need not to worry, RIPE definitions either have a direct equivalent or are a superset of those used by other RIRs.

STATUS Meaning Use for Minimum allocation Other RIRs call it Color code ispettore tombale pulitina
UNSPECIFIED HaCi uses this value for newly created networks. This status does not conflict with any other values. both
ALLOCATED PA This address space has been allocated to an LIR and no assignments or sub-allocations made from it are portable. Assignments and suballocations cannot be kept when moving to another provider. ipv4
ALLOCATED PI This address space has been allocated to an LIR or RIR and all assignments made from it are portable. Assignments can be kept as long as the criteria for the original assignment are met. Sub-allocations cannot be made from this type of address space. ipv4
ALLOCATED UNSPECIFIED This address space has been allocated to an LIR or RIR. Assignments may be PA or PI. This status is intended to document past allocations where assignments of both types exist. It is avoided for new allocations. Sub-allocations cannot be made from this type of address space. ipv4
SUB-ALLOCATED PA This address space has been sub-allocated by an LIR to a downstream network operator that will make assignments from it. All assignments made from it are PA. They cannot be kept when moving to a service provided by another provider. ipv4
LIR-PARTITIONED PA This allows an LIR to document distribution and delegate management of allocated space within their organisation. Address space with a status of LIR-PARTITIONED is not considered used. When the addresses are used, a more specific inetnum should be registered. ipv4
LIR-PARTITIONED PI This allows an LIR to document distribution and delegate management of allocated space within their organisation. Address space with a status of LIR-PARTITIONED is not considered used. When the addresses are used, a more specific inetnum should be registered. ipv4
EARLY-REGISTRATION This is used by the RIPE Database administration when transferring pre-RIR registrations from the ARIN Database. The value can be changed by database users (except for ALLOCATED PA). Only the RIPE Database administrators can create objects with this value. ipv4
NOT-SET This indicates that the registration was made before the "status:" attributes became mandatory for inetnum objects. The object has not been updated since then. New objects cannot be created with this value. The value can be changed by database users. ipv4
ASSIGNED PA This address space has been assigned to an End User for use with services provided by the issuing LIR. It cannot be kept when terminating services provided by the LIR. ipv4
ASSIGNED PI This address space has been assigned to an End User and can be kept as long as the criteria for the original assignment are met. ipv4
ASSIGNED ANYCAST This address space has been assigned for use in TLD anycast networks. It cannot be kept when no longer used for TLD anycast services. ipv4
ALLOCATED-BY-RIR For allocations made by an RIR to an LIR. ipv6
ALLOCATED-BY-LIR For allocations made by an LIR or an LIR's downstream customer to another downstream organisation. ipv6
ASSIGNED For assignments made to End User sites. ipv6
IN USE You can use this value to indicate that an address has been actually configured on a machine both
RESERVED You can use this value to make it clear that a network has been booked for some future use both
LOCKED You can use this value for ... boh, you decide both
FREE You can use this value to mark a subnet that is available for further use both
