Server management subsystems enable overall system monitoring and control. The subsystems include dedicated and redundant Ethernet-based networks that interconnect all managed chassis and VMSs.
The server management network consists of two physical networks on separate paths:
- Primary network — for direct management communications of all managed chassis in all cabinets, through Server Management Web (SMWeb) Services.
- Secondary network — for backup communications of all chassis that support a second Ethernet connection, through SMWeb Services.
