Hardware diagnostics   
Partitioning (node grouping)   
Access control (add/delete users from system and their permissions)  
   
Information    
Node Identification   
Boot log   
Harware inventory   
Hardware maintenance history   
Software inventory   
Node administrative state   
   
   
External Components we depend on:
