Question CM 6.0 and system platform

In a CM HA pair 6.0/SysPlatform environment I may have several IP addresses. The staging form calls them:

S88XX Primary
S88XX Secondary
C - dom
Domain - 0
Utility Server

If I understand the documentation correctly, C-dom, Domain-0 and Utility Server all have their own IP address on each of the 2 HA servers and are each seperate domains/virtual machines existing within the S88xx connected to the Public Bridge created within System Domain/Domain-0. The S88XX Primary and Secondary and alias are the CM server, which is also just another domain/virtual machine?? And of course the alias is the virtual IP used by either the primary or secondary CM depending on which is active at any given time (a VIP).

So is there a physical address associated with the Ethernet port on the S88XX or are they all essentially virtual? In my mind the Domain-0 partition is the "base" for all of this and therefore is the closest thing to a physical address there is... unless you are going to tell me that there is a physical address on the port as well and I just missed that in the docs!?? But otherwise I am thinking these are all virtual addresses and there really is no "physical address" for these two boxes.
