You, as an administrator, use the IC Domain Configuration objects to specify the underlying IP Manager, Adapter Platform, and satellite Domain Manager components in an IP Manager deployment. Doing so provides the sources of topology and events for the Global Manager and associates each underlying component with the proper data exchange adapter (DXA) file. The Global Manager integrates and correlates the imported topology and events, and relates the data to services and customers.

To specify the underlying satellite Domain Managers, consult the appropriate Domain Manager configuration guides.

To specify the underlying components in a more complex IP Manager deployment, consult the Service Assurance Manager Configuration Guide.
