OMI - Network Management

1995 Version of ANSI (Equivalent to Current ISO Version) of Standard

Right Hand Pointer

B.2 Network management

This International Standard requires some items whose provision is outside the scope of the standard, for example names and passwords appearing in its messages. The designers expect a network manager to coordinate these items and provide them to OMI implementations in a cooperative, "friendly" collection of nodes. Another network protocol could, in principle, perform these functions as well.

Different implementations have different names for objects; OMI consistently uses the servers' names. The designers expect implementations to allow the network manager to enter servers' names into clients' nodes, where clients' names for objects are translated into servers' names.

Items that may need translation:

In addition, the agent and server exchange their names and passwords in the connect transaction (5.4.1). Their administration is the network manager's responsibility.
