Are Major / Minor combos shared across the whole Bluecats infrastructure?

Matt Jan 17, 2018 06:53AM CST

I constantly find that when trying to set a major/minor combination to a fixed entry, I get errors that state that they are unavailable.

I know that I don't have those entries within my account(s) and within my beacon allocation, so I'm under the assumption that major and minor values are global within the Bluecats' system and that any expected and planned configurations cannot be guaranteed to be available.

For example

Site created to have a major of 35. Beacons are allocated minor values from 1 through to 50. Various values (such as 22, 35, 47) are unable to be set as stated they already exist.

(Example above not real world values)

By default, we do not allow people to change major and minor to BlueCats region, but you can change major and minor when you create your own Region:

1. Go to
2. Create New Region
3. Add Region Name (Needs to not be taken)
4. You can wait to select Major minor and save it.
5. After Go to the Beacon you want to change.
6. Click on the Gear
7. Click Settings and Updates
8. Click Edit
9. Change Beacon Region, now you should be able to change Major and minor
