By default, INCHARGE-MPLS-TOPOLOGY, INCHARGE-MPLS-MONITORING, and INCHARGE-MPLS-ANALYSIS are disabled. Also, by default, INCHARGE-AM is enabled. The names of disabled domains appear as gray text in the Global Manager Administration Console, and the names of enabled domains appear as black text.

Before and after completing configuration scenario 1 previews the configuration changes for configuration scenario 1. Enabling a domain group enables all of its component server domains.

Figure 1. Before and after completing configuration scenario 1

During its initial startup the Global Manager performs the following tasks:

  • Creates an InChargeDomain object named INCHARGE-AM and starts the appropriate topology and event drivers.

  • Consults the Domain Manager Broker for the deployment and establishes a connection to the INCHARGE-AM application.

  • Subscribes to and imports topology and events from the INCHARGE-AM application.

    Every time that the Global Manager is restarted, it automatically initiates a server reconfiguration (that is, calls the reconfigure method) to align the IC domain group and domain configuration objects with the InCharge domain group and domain objects. For the initial startup, because the only IC Domain Configuration object enabled is INCHARGE-AM, the only alignment required is the one just described.

    If the synchronization with the INCHARGE-AM application fails, or if no IP Availability Manager application named INCHARGE-AM exists in the deployment, the Global Manager writes an error message to its log file.

    This section consists of the following procedures:

  • Procedure for specifying the underlying MPLS domains for configuration scenario 1
  • Procedure for reconfiguring the Global Manager for configuration scenario 1
