This topic describes the O&M methods that are supported by Bastionhost and how to use Bastionhost to perform O&M operations on servers. This topic is intended for O&M personnel. Bastionhost supports two methods to perform O&M operations: client-based O&M and web-based O&M. We recommend that you choose a method based on your daily O&M requirements.

Web-based O&M

Bastionhost allows you to perform O&M operations on a web page. You do not need to download an O&M client. You can log on to a server from your browser to perform O&M operations on a web page. To log on to the server, use the host O&M feature in the Bastionhost console. For more information, see Use the host O&M feature.

Client-based O&M

You can download the O&M client for the operating system that you use and log on to your bastion host to perform O&M operations on your server.
