From IP Availability Manager, VoIP Availability Manager imports the initial device (system) topology, receives topology updates, and receives Layer 1 (physical) and Layer 2 (data-link) status updates relevant to the imported topology.
The device topology consists of device objects along with the Chassis, Card, IP address, and SNMPAgent objects associated with the device objects. The SNMPAgent objects carry the SNMP credential information that VoIP Availability Manager needs to perform SNMP discovery and SNMP polling.
The device topology import may be for one of the following:
All devices discovered by IP Availability Manager (along with the chassis, selected cards for Avaya Enablement Pack, IP addresses, and SNMPAgents associated with the devices).
Just the device topology contained in the customized VoIP topology collection set (along with the chassis, selected cards for Avaya Enablement Pack, IP addresses, and SNMPAgents associated with those devices).
The control for topology import is in the following file in the VoIP Availability Manager installation area:
By default, VoIP Availability Manager imports all devices from IP Availability Manager. The VMware Smart Assurance VoIP Availability Manager Configuration Guide provides information about configuring VoIP Availability Manager to import the VoIP topology collection set.
