[arin-tech-discuss] Can a customer handle (e.g. Cxxxxxxxx) be associated with more than one IP

That’s a really bad mistake…

I employ ARIN to fix this ASAP.

Lots of customers end up with multiple assignments, especially in IPv4.

It is far from optimal for a customer to have multiple handles and I am hard pressed to understand any reason to do so.

> We moved from performing detailed-assignment (ORG+POC) to just SIMPLE ASSIGNMENT.  We had many old records that where once set up with DETAILED that are now trying to do SIMPLE ASSIGNMENT. In the old way we always re-used ORG-ID or HANDLE that we got back from ARIN for all subsequent registrations involving the same customer. So suppose we have the following:
> when we do the first simple assignment for IP-A we obtain Customer handle Cxxxxxxx. The question is can we use the same customer handle for IP-B (same customer information) or must we obtain a new Customer handle for each IP when doing Simple assignment?
