The Global Manager imports instances of the following object types from Network Protocol Manager for IS-IS:

  • ISISArea

  • ISISService

  • ISISNetwork

  • ISISAdjacency

  • SystemRedundancyGroup

  • UnitaryComputerSystem (Router, for example)

    Chapter 3, IS-IS Objects and their Failures, provides descriptions of ISISArea, ISISService, ISISNetwork, ISISAdjacency, and SystemRedundancyGroup. The VMware Smart Assurance IP Manager Concepts Guide provides a description of UnitaryComputerSystem and the IP data model.

    The Global Manager combines this topology with the underlying physical-transport topology imported from IP Availability Manager.
