This version of the N1 System Manager software supports the Sun Blade 8000 Modular System hardware.
The Sun Blade 8000 hardware is defined by N1 System Manager as follows:
The support chassis, which can contain one or several Sun Blade X8400 Server Modules, to become a Sun Blade 8000 Modular System. The chassis also contains a system controller (SC) known as the Chassis Monitoring Module, (CMM). The CMM has a DB9 console connector and an Ethernet port for IP configuration.
This module is a four-socket Sun Blade X8400 Server Module, which is inserted into the Sun Blade 8000 Chassis. Each Sun Blade X8400 Server Module has a service processor (SP), 2 USB ports, 1 VGA port, and 1 DB9 connector for console access.
This system is a Sun Blade 8000 Chassis, with one or several Sun Blade X8400 Server Modules installed. The server modules within a single chassis are known as blades, and are defined by the N1 System Manager software as being a distinct group of servers, identical to the N1 System Manager concept of a logical group, described in Creating Groups and Adding Managed Servers to Groups in Sun N1 System Manager 1.3 Discovery and Administration Guide. A discovered group of Sun Blade X8400 Server Modules in a Sun Blade 8000 Modular System is also referred to as a chassis server group.
