|Sun Datacenter InfiniBand Switch 36 HTML Document Collection for Firmware Version 2.0|
Note - If you do not need either a primary or secondary Subnet Manager running on the switch, you can skip this procedure and attach the data cables. See Attach the Data Cables.
Your InfiniBand fabric requires only one primary (or master) Subnet Manager, and it has the highest priority. If any other Subnet Managers exist, they are secondary Subnet Managers, and must have a lower priority. You must determine which switch, switch, or InfiniBand device hosts the primary Subnet Manager, and if there are secondary Subnet Managers. If you have only one switch in your InfiniBand fabric, and there are no Subnet Managers other than the one within the management controller, you do not need to set the Subnet Manager priority.
