Out of Band Based Remote Management using DMTF Specifications

This paper presents a review on the solution for out of band based remote management using Distributed Management Task Force (DMTF) specifications. DMTF provides a standard for secure remote management, including out-of-band management, of desktop systems. DMTF defines standards that support interoperability among system management tools and managed computer systems. Desktop Management Interface (DMI), Common Information Model (CIM) and Alert Standard Format [5] (ASF) are some of the specifications provided by the DMTF.DMI and CIM interfaces [2] are used for the remote management when theOperating System (OS) is present on client systems. Remote control and alerting interfaces provided by the ASF are used for management when OS not present on client systems. Keywords - DMTF; DMI; CIM; ASF;
