In this scenario, when an Active BIM attached to an Active SAM is down, then the Standby BIM attached to the Standby SAM disconnects and connects to the Active SAM. This scenario is illustrated below:

  1. All components are up and running. Active BIM talks to Active SAM and vice versa. Similarly, Standby BIM talks to Standby SAM and vice versa.

  2. Active BIM goes down.

  3. Standby BIM is dissociated from Standby SAM.

  4. Standby BIM is associated with Active SAM.
