The Topology Split Manager configuration directory is TSM_BASEDIR/smarts/conf, shown in GUID-ECCF6D10-2F5D-4CA0-B686-5A3526DEEA0B.html#GUID-ECCF6D10-2F5D-4CA0-B686-5A3526DEEA0B___TOPO_SPLIT_OVERVIEW_99604. TSM_BASEDIR, which is not an environment variable, is used in this document to represent the top-level directory structure of a Topology Split Manager installation. TSM_BASEDIR represents <installation root directory>/TSM/IP.
In the TSM_BASEDIR/smarts/conf directory:
The “discovery” directory holds the discovery configurations for the Topology Split Manager.
The “discovery/topo-split” directory holds the topology-split configurations for the Topology Split Manager.
The “icf” directory holds the bootstrap file for the Topology Split Manager.
The bootstrap file for the Topology Split Manager determines the operating role of the Topology Split Manager and sets up its environment.
The --config and --bootstrap options in a Topology Split Manager startup command point to the bootstrap-tsm.conf file in the icf directory. Pointing to this bootstrap file causes the startup software to load the bootstrap file, which contains a line of code that starts the Topology Split Manager as a “DISCOVERY_MANAGER.”Note:
The --config option in an IP Manager startup command points to the bootstrap files in the icf directory. The default bootstrap file is bootstrap.conf, which starts an IP Manager as an “AVAILABILITY_AND_PERFORMANCE_MANAGER” (AM-PM). The addition of the --bootstrap option in an IP Manager startup command points to a particular bootstrap file in the icf directory, such as bootstrap-am.conf, which starts an IP Manager as an “AVAILABILITY_MANAGER” (AM), or bootstrap-am-pm.conf, which also starts an IP Manager as an “AVAILABILITY_AND_PERFORMANCE_MANAGER” (AM-PM).
