Although a configured switch operates normally without HAFM server intervention,
an attached server should operate at all times to monitor switch operation, log events
and configuration changes, and report failures.
The HAFM server provides an auto-detecting 10/100 Mbps LAN connection,
provided by an internal Ethernet adapter card. This LAN port attaches to the
customer's public intranet to allow access from remote user workstations. An optional
Ethernet adapter card (not supplied by HP) can be installed in the personal computer
memory card international association (PCMCIA) slot to provide a connection to a
private LAN segment for dedicated director communication.
The HAFM server and managed directors connect through a rack-mounted 10/100
Base-T Ethernet hub.
