Client tier

The client tier includes:

  • A console, a graphical user interface (GUI) that:
    • Gives system administrators a host of sophisticated tools for managing and automating data center procedures
    • Lets system administrators provision operating systems onto servers
  • A command line interface (BLCLI) that provides application programming interface (API)-level access to the functionality available through the console
  • A web interface to BladeLogic Portal if it is installed at your site
  • Network Shell for ad hoc administration of one or more servers. Network Shell is a network scripting language that enables cross-platform access through a command line interface.
  • A web interface to the BMC BladeLogic Decision Support for Server Automation server
  • A web client for Live Reporting

All client-tier applications let you manage servers on a variety of platforms:
