You can execute a remote action on an event. These remote actions are created by an administrator as a response to specific events as required for your environment. You can perform remote actions on events that have been associated with or mapped to devices through a device alias. The device must be configured so that it allows the remote action to be executed on it.

When you use a remote action, it is issued from your local console but executed on the computer where the BMC ProactiveNet Cell or BMC ProactiveNet cell is installed. The number of remote actions that you can execute depends on the event type, core event or intelligent event.
