L.1 Overview

OES 11 SP2 services are managed using Web-Based Enterprise Management (WBEM) as proposed by the Distributed Management Task Force (DMTF).

The following information describes a few of the components proposed by the DMTF standards.

The packages contained in the Web-based Enterprise Management pattern in the Primary Functions category include a set of basic Novell providers, including some sample providers, and a base set of accompanying Novell schemas.

SLES 11 provides SFCB as default CIMOM and CIM clients. OES 11 uses these because they are part of the base OS.
