IntelliFlex supports up to 86 cabinets using a daisy-chain topology for Server Management connections.

Server Management Network Example for 22 Cabinets

  • This configuration example could be expanded to additional cabinets by connecting the cabinets to the Server Management switches in Cabinets 7 through 22.
  • Each cabinet shown represents a collective.
  • Separate primary and secondary paths ensure network redundancy.
  • The primary and secondary networks are configured as follows:
    • The primary Ethernet switch in the first cabinet connects to primary switches in Cabinets 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6. Cabinets 3, 4, 5, and 6 connect to additional cabinets in the configuration as needed. Cabinet 2 provides the UDA connections.
    • The secondary Ethernet switch in the second cabinet connects directly to secondary switches in Cabinets 1, 6, 3, 4, and 5. Cabinets 6, 3, 4, and 5 connect to additional cabinets in the configuration as needed. Cabinet 1 provides the UDA connections.
  • If the system is included in a UDA environment, ports are reserved on the primary and secondary Server Management switches for UDA connections to the other system or systems in the UDA environment.

The following tables provide cable connections for a maximum configuration of 86 cabinets:
