The VMware Smart Assurance XD Manager - OTM-to-IP AM solution assumes that each XD Manager OTM to IP server will manage a unique subset of network connections. This means that if there are multiple servers, each will manage a unique set of NetworkConnections, Cables, or TrunkCables, layered over Circuits.

The XD Manager OTM to IP can manage a Circuit that has one end in a high-order SONET/SDH domain server and the other end in a low-order SONET/SDH domain.
