  • This configuration is built on the cabinet and collective topology defined in Collectives.
  • This configuration illustrates topology for two appliance cabinets.
  • Each appliance cabinet shown above represents a collective. The collective may include Platform Framework cabinets (not shown).
  • The System VMS in the base cabinet (Cabinet 1) hosts the SWS VM and CMIC VM. The Cabinet VMS in the expansion cabinet hosts the CMIC VM.
  • Separate primary and secondary paths ensure network backup. The primary and secondary networks are configured as follows:
    • The System VMS in Cabinet 1 connects to the primary and secondary Ethernet switches in Cabinet 1.
    • The primary Ethernet switch in Cabinet 1 connects to the primary Ethernet switch in Cabinet 2.
    • The Cabinet VMS in Cabinet 2 connects to the primary and secondary Ethernet switches in Cabinet 2.
    • The secondary Ethernet switch in Cabinet 2 connects to the secondary Ethernet switch in Cabinet 1.
  • For port-to-port cabling, see the appropriate Hardware Installation Guide.
