3.5 Systems and System Health Management
Systems and System Health Management is the ability to control settings and to collect data for a set of clients and servers. The protocols in this scenario are protocols that enable the client to either query another system or to manipulate that other system for administrative purposes. The overall scenario comprises several protocols, as shown in the following diagram.
Figure 25: Protocol scenarios
As can be seen in the preceding diagram, the Systems and System Health Management scenario is comparatively high-level; it runs over RPC or DCOM.
Several of the protocols in this scenario are covered elsewhere, for example:
Event logging also has its own scenario, as specified in section 3.9.
The Directory Services Setup Remote Protocol (DSSETUP) is used to query a remote computer about its domain-related status. The Directory Services Setup RPC interface is only accessible over an RPC named pipes binding.
