  All versions of the server contain comments in the "ippool" module
that say "users file".  The text that follows it is supposed to go into
the "users" file.

  Because you didn't configure the "users" file correctly.

  Which doesn't match the example given in the "ippool" module.

  (1) You put the Pool-Name attribute on the SECOND line, not the FIRST
      See "man users" for the format of the "users" file.
  (2) You use "==" as the operator, not ":=".
      See "man users" for the format of the "users" file.

  Again, this is documented in the comments in the "ippool" module, and
in the "man" page for the "users" file.
