The server can be divided into one to four PDomains. Each PDomain operates like an independent server that has full hardware isolation from other PDomains on the server. A hardware or software failure on one PDomain does not affect the other PDomains on a server.
DCUs contain their own CPUs, memory, storage, network connections, and PCIe expansion slots. Using Oracle ILOM commands, you can combine these DCUs to create PDomains.
The PDomain cabling varies depending on your application and networking environment. However, plan to connect at least one networking cable to each PDomain.
Each DCU contains four EMS modules, and each EMS contains two 10-GbE (10GBase-T) ports (a total of eight available 10-GbE ports per DCU). By attaching Category 6A or better network cables from your network to these 10-GbE ports, you can create multiple, redundant networking connections to each PDomain.
