This IBM Redpaper positions the new IBM Director V5.20 against the other IBM systems management products. Although IBM systems management software products include several choices as Cluster Systems Management and IBM Tivoli Management suite, and some features might seem to overlap, each product targets a specific environment.

This paper will help you to install, tailor, and configure the IBM Director software on IBM System p servers running AIX 5L V5.3 and various Linux enterprise distributions.

This paper provides practical examples of how to use various functions of IBM Director and helps you to understand the
choices that you have to manage IBM System p servers.
