2. 2011 Avaya Inc. All rights reserved. System Manager Introduction System wide management of CM-Next Generation System Manager provides IT and Telecom Operations the means to manage the core elements of CM-Next Generation together as a System System Manager optimizes management functions for provisioning, operations and fault/performance monitoring to simplify and reduce management complexity and solution servicing Reduces complexity of operations for distributed multi-site networks with multiple control points (inherent with SIP) Increases the value of convergence through tight integration with the enterprise IT infrastructure (Identity, Security, Master Data, ITIL Processes) Key Customer Benefits End-to-End View, Single unified console with workflow-based management Better skill set re-use and increased productivity through easy-to-use tools Integrated provisioning to reduce configuration errors Reduces TCO and reduces service support costs through automation of time- consuming, error-prone tasks Accelerate customer application integration with standards-based interfaces 2 3. 2011 Avaya Inc. All rights reserved. Summary of Avaya Customer Input Simplify Enter user data only once across the enterprise environment (too many management tools requiring separate entry) Single view and administration point of Avaya solutions Consistent level of management across products Secure Roles based permissions with standard AAA Secure management protocols Integrate Provide SNMP consistency across all solutions Directory integration for user data Accessible from other tools using industry standard interfaces 3 4. 2011 Avaya Inc. All rights reserved. System Manager Functional Components System Manager includes both framework and management services: A browser-based, extensible common console framework With UI design patterns to ensure consistent user experience A set of shared management services that Manage shared resources across all elements For example User Profile Management Provide centralized data store and single point of access Are extensible for element specific data, UI, logic, etc. A common installation framework An Element Manager to manage itself Element Managers provide element unique management services and UIs to manage element resources System Manager works in conjunction w. Element Managers to deliver a common and uniform management experience 4 5. 2011 Avaya Inc. All rights reserved. System Manager Functionality Infrastructure Web-console with single sign on User permissions Logging Alarming SAL integration for alarm, remote access, inventory Trust mgmt (certificates) Health monitoring (Lifecycle) Enhanced security management Central mngt services User profile management (UPM) Network routing policy (NRP) administration 5 6. 2011 Avaya Inc.

Avaya Management Today Each Element does its own management, no consistency Some common central management Same data may be entered multiple times (limited shared data) Various integrations with enterprise management With System Manager Key management functions centralized with extensible services Common console Consistent UI Single point of entry Seamless navigation (SSO) Consolidated logs and alarms Systematic integration with enterprise management Application Voice Portal Element Manager Application Element Manager IQ Element Manager Application Element Manager Element Manager Administrator Element Element Manager Element Element Manager Element Element Manager Element Element Manager System Manager Managem ent ServicesEP Managem ent ServicesEP Managem ent ServicesEP Management Services EP Administrator Common Console 6 7. 2011 Avaya Inc.

Geographic Redundancy (GR) Overview Allows a pair of geographically redundant SMGRs in different locations (IP subnets) in a primary- secondary configuration Primary SMGR GR System Managers Secondary SMGR The Secondary SMGR is normally in warm standby mode and becomes a fully functional SMGR upon activation by the administrator While in standby mode, the secondary SMGR has restricted services The secondary SMGR is synchronized to the primary SMGR on a per transaction batch basis while in warm standby mode When activated to provide full SMGR services the Secondary will have the same information as the Primary SMGR Exception being any transactions that did not replicate at the time of primary failure Either the primary or secondary SMGR, or both, can be deployed in a High availability (HA) configuration. HA support is based on System Platform HA. No WebLM License is Required for SMGR GR 10 10. 2011 Avaya Inc. All rights reserved. General Geographic Redundancy (GR) Requirements and Recommendations System Manager Server Environment The two servers have the same version of software All servers are identical (manufacture, model, platform resources) The two servers can reach each other on the network The clocks are synchronized between the servers (network time sync recommended) Network Requirements and Recommendations Recommend the use of DNS so name resolution is automatic. Else IP Address and Host name resolution needs to be done in the /etc/hosts file. Ensure required ports are open to support the SMGR-GR Feature. Ports are identified in the SMGR 6.3 Port Matrix that will be posted on the Avaya Tech Support Website (Examples: Ports 57, 443, 636, 5432, 30868) Recommended minimum data-pipe between SMGR Primary and Secondary is T1 (1.544Mbs) Recommended to have less than 500 ms of network latency. No impacts on 6.3 SMGR GR in testing. Primary SMGR GR System Managers Secondary SMGR 11 11. 2011 Avaya Inc. All rights reserved.

Software & 2 Servers - Standalone SMGR in a High Availability (HA) pair configuration running on two Avaya supplied servers or a SMGR Geographic Redundancy (GR) pair configuration running on two Avaya supplied servers. Either configuration can be supported with the two servers, but not both. 3. Software & 4 Servers Two SMGR pairs in a High Availability (HA) and a Geographic Redundancy (GR) configuration running on four Avaya supplied servers. For example: Two data centers, each with a SMGR HA Pair in a Geographic Redundant configuration across the two data centers. 4. Software Only Option if customer already has an Avaya supplied server, that they will repurpose for SMGR utilization. The Avaya supplied server hardware used by the customer for the software only option, must comply with the hardware specifications for the release of SMGR software being ordered. Only Avaya supplied servers are supported by SMGR. 5. None - Only one SMGR domain is required and supported per Enterprise. Selecting None means that the System Manager application in a Standalone, HA or GR configuration already exists for this customer and no materials (either software or hardware) will be provided. [DEFAULT SETTING] Note: When ordering multiple servers for HA or GR, all servers must be identical 15 15. 2011 Avaya Inc. All rights reserved.
