Novell iManager

Web-based centralized network administration that eliminates administrative redundancy, saves time and saves money.

The browser-based monitoring tool in Novell iManager gives you a global view of your network and allows you to centrally manage the demands of your network from a single location. It provides a number of advanced capabilities that enhance your administrative capacity and flexibility. From a web browser you can use iManager to manage Novell Open Enterprise Server, Novell Identity Manager, Novell eDirectory™ and many other Novell and third-party services. In addition, the product provides a single point of administration for directory objects, schema, partitions, replicas and many other network resources. Its centralized web-based management allows you to eliminate administrative redundancy, save time and save money.

Novell iManager also features role-based services for 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, NetWare®, Red Hat Linux*, and Windows*. Its 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 Novell 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.

Novell iManager provides secure, customized access to network administration utilities and content from virtually anywhere you have access to the Internet and a web browser. With iManager, secure, flexible network administration is only a browser away.
