Inband management VPN feature


Inband device management is implemented through a virtual private network (VPN). That is, related inband management protocols support specified VPN instances, and management packets are received and forwarded through different virtual routes. In this way, carriers can use private network IP addresses to manage and maintain devices remotely. This method saves public network IP addresses and isolates the management network from the public network.

Inband management concept
The management control data of the storage device is transferred on the same link as the service data. In a typical connection, the application server connects to the storage device by using the service network port. Install the Inband Agent software (part of the HostAgent software package) on the application server to manage the storage device without interrupting service data transfer.

Difference between the inband management and out-of-band management
The differences of these two management modes lie in: Reliability: In out-of-band mode, when the service link is faulty, you can still log in to and manage the storage device by using the management link. Management mode: In out-of-band mode, either the ISM or CLI can be used for management. In inband mode, only the ISM can be used. Networking: In inband mode, management data and service data share the same link. Therefore, the number of network cables is reduced. Functions: In inband mode, the application server collaborates with the storage device. In some cases, the performance of the storage device is enhanced.
