Software components
HP Device Manager Console
This is the User Interface. Several consoles can interact with a Device Manager server. The console allows system administrators to view details for each controlled device, organize device trees, create and maintain remote job definitions, and monitor tasks sent out to devices.
HP Device Manager Server
The server controls agents through the Device Manager gateway. Tasks, stored as Knowledge Templates on the server, can be sent to each agent through each agent's respective gateway to perform commands as required. Device Manager requires a DBMS (Access, mySQL, MS-SQL 2000 or MS-SQL 2005).
HP Device Manager Gateway
The gateway serves as the link between devices and the Device Manager server. Devices register with the gateway when they are started. The system installed with the gateway also normally contains the PXE Server installed by the HP Device Manager.
Devices
The agent software component is installed on client devices so that HP Device Manager can interact with them. These agents are embedded into each HP Neoware thin client operating system to enable Device Manager to manage them out-of-the-box. These agents get task commands, execute the commands and report on their status.
FTP Server
The FTP server is where files are stored in a repository of components, images, etc. that can be uploaded from or downloaded to the agents at the request of the server.
