Tivoli has added support for popular Lan management tools to its system management product, TME 10.
Under the umbrella of TME 10 Lan Access, Tivoli's flagship product will work with IBM Net Finity, Intel Lan Desk Manager and Microsoft Systems Management Server. This means users will be able to retain these on their PCs rather than replacing them with Tivoli agents - although agents are still more efficient, claimed the company.
Mark Watson, systems engineer at Tivoli UK, said: ?This is aimed at protecting the investment already made in Lan management tools. Previously users would have had to replace these utilities or work along with them side by side.?
However, Watson recommended that this should be an interim option because Tivoli?s mangement environment would work more effectively if Tivoli agents were used instead of third party tools.
Watson said the TME 10 Lan Access option would be suited to medium to large companies that would find it cost effective to retain the third party tools in some areas.
Tivoli expects to support Lan management tools from McAfee, Novell and Seagate in the future.
