Universal Script Wrapper-An innovative solution to manage endpoints in large and heterogeneous environment


Endpoint management is a key function for data center management and cloud management. Today's practice to manage endpoints for the enterprise is labor intensive, tedious and error prone. In this paper, we present Universal Script Wrapper, an innovative solution which provides a unique solution to allow users to manage a group of endpoints as if logged in to one endpoint. It harvests proven scripts and makes them available to automate management tasks on endpoints without modification. To reduce risk, it provides a mechanism to guard against intrusive commands and scripts that could cause massive damage to the infrastructure. © 2013 IFIP.
