A redundancy group is a logical entity that contains two or more objects that participate in a redundant configuration. For example, a remote site that is accessed through two routers may be modeled as a redundancy group that contains the two routers. If one router fails, the redundancy is at risk. If both fail, all capability is lost.

ECIM-R supports redundancy groups of cards, network adapters, network connections, protocol endpoints, and unitary computer systems.

The VMware Smart Assurance IP Manager User Guide provides information about creating redundancy groups.
