Hello Group,

When designing an Internet Data Center, would you consider Out of Band
management capability a mandotory requirement for the
communications & security equipment only;
everything installed including each and every server;
an optional requirement (nice to have);

If you do require it, what would be the suggested implementation - another
NIC in each machine (even if that may require you to maintain a routing
entry for the management net), KVM based or other methods? Would you run
control protocols such as SNMP and backup products over this net?
