Most of the configuration tasks for configuring the Global Manager in a Network Protocol Manager deployment are accomplished by using the Global Manager Administration Console view of the Global Console. Global Manager Administration Console interaction with the Global Manager summarizes the Global Manager Administration Console interaction with the Global Manager.
As shown in Figure 12, the initial configurations for the Global Manager are stored in the ics-default.xml file and imported into the Global Manager’s repository when the Global Manager starts up. The configurations displayed in a newly started Global Manager Administration Console are exported from the Global Manager’s repository.
IC Domain Configuration objects and their relationships shows the relationships between Domain Group, Domain, Domain Type, and Domain Tag configuration objects. The intent of the Domain Group is to represent the server components of a split-server Domain Manager as a single entity. Doing so makes a split-server Domain Manager look just like a standalone Domain Manager to administrators and users.
Default domain configurations for a Network Protocol Manager deployment identifies the default Network Protocol Manager, IP Availability Manager, and Adapter Platform domain configurations held by the Global Manager. The default names for the respective domains are:
Each of these domain names represents a standalone Domain Manager.
