After installing the Topology Split Manager, the IP Availability Managers, the Global Manager, and the optional Adapter for Alcatel-Lucent 5620 SAM EMS in a Topology Split Manager deployment, you configure them so that they can form the proper connections to one another. You also configure discovery for the Topology Split Manager and the IP Availability Managers, and configure topology split for the Topology Split Manager.

Some configuration tasks are performed before the applications are started, such as the editing of configuration files, and some are performed through the Global Console when the applications are up and running.
