Since the acquisition of Novell by The Attachmate Group, iManager is now a NetIQ® tool.
NetIQ iManager provides a global view of your network from one browser-based tool, allowing you to proactively assess and respond to your changing network demands. With iManager, you can manage Novell Open Enterprise Server, NetIQ Identity Manager, NetIQ eDirectory™ and many other Novell, NetIQ, and third-party services—from a web browser. In addition iManager provides a single point of administration for directory objects, schema, partitions, replicas and many other network resources. This centralized web-based management allows you to eliminate administrative redundancy, saving both time and money.
NetIQ iManager also provides a number of advanced capabilities that take network administration to a new level. Most notably, iManager features delegated administration, which allows you to assign individuals with specific management tasks and duties. Delegating simple administrative tasks like resetting passwords or adding network printers allows you, the network administrator, to focus on strategic projects that more directly affect the company's bottom line. In addition, the product runs on a variety of operating systems, including SUSE® Linux Enterprise Server, Open Enterprise Server, NetWare®, Red Hat Linux, and Windows. This multi-platform support gives you flexibility in where and how you deploy the management console. This helps address the challenge of managing complex, heterogeneous networks in which a wide range of applications are running on a variety of operating systems.
Other innovations in iManager include integrated Plug-in update and download and the Plug-in Studio, which allows you to create a customized management interface without writing a single line of code. Leveraging standard technologies and application interfaces, Novell iManager provides an ideal architecture for the creation of a customized management interface. With iManager, secure, flexible network administration is only a browser away.
