NAS Web Custom Feature Subfeature Description-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------x x x Development This provides documentation and sample code to tools allow the server appliance to be customized. x x x Initialization This software component allows you to customize the out-of-computer experience for the user. The appliance can be configured to search for a floppy disk at first boot, which can contain a configuration file to set host name, administrator password, and IP settings for static IP environments. If the file is not found at boot time, the appliance boots either as a DHCP client or with auto IP settings. In this case, you can provide a unique default host name and administrator password.x x x Local UI Local The user can set the IP settings, host name, configuration and administrator password by using the local user interface on the appliance.x x x Local UI Local UI The Local UI framework allows you to framework develop your own content to plug into the Server Appliance Kit's local UI, without requiring any code changes to the local UI framework code. The optional local display can be a simple bank of LEDs, or a 64x128 pixel bitmapped LCD. The framework provides a navigation scheme using a six-key keypad on the front of the appliance, including four directional keys as well as ENTER and CANCEL keys.x x x Reliability Reliability To provide the highest level of uptime, framework you can add optional hardware watchdog timers to your appliance. A watchdog timer driver is then provided to allow the watchdog to plug into the reliability framework. The reliability framework is responsible for periodically resetting the watchdog timer and for taking corrective action if critical system resources, such as free memory, exceed particular thresholds.x Web UI Disks and This feature allows the end customer to volumes manage disks and volumes on the Windows Powered server appliance. The feature uses an ActiveX Control for the Windows Terminal Services client to provide access to the disk management Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-in on the appliance. The disk management snap-in is accessed through the appliance's Web management UI from a Windows-based client computer. This feature is otherwise identical to the capability provided on Windows 2000 Server and Windows 2000 Advanced Server.x Web UI Folders and The folders component allows folders on shares the appliance to be created and deleted. Various folder properties can also be set, including compression, encryption, and security. The shares component allows shares to be created on the appliance by using a browser. The shares feature aggregates the management of all shares no matter what file-sharing protocol you use, including CIFS, network file system (NFS), FTP, NetWare and AppleShare. This is different from the standard Windows file share management, where each share type has its own interface. In the Server Appliance Kit's Web UI, a common property subset is exposed to simplify the management of shares. Properties specific to a protocol, such as CIFS or NFS, are presented on separate property pages. x Web UI FTP management TBD x Web UI IIS management TBDx x x Web UI Logs This feature allows users to view, clear, download, and configure logs on the server appliance. Third-party developers can add to logs in the Web UI so that they can be viewed, downloaded, configured, and cleared by the user. Web UI plug-ins for specific logs are provided in the Server Appliance Kit, including Windows 2000 system, application, and security event logs as well as NFS, WWW, and FTP logs.x x x Web UI Network setup This allows the user to join the appliance into a workgroup or domain, set the hostname, configure DNS servers, configure individual network interface cards (NICs) on the appliance, and change the administrator password.x Web UI Services This allows critical system services such as network protocols to be enabled, disabled, and configured. Third-party developers can add service components to the Web UI so that they can be enabled, disabled, and configured by the user. Web UI components for specific services are provided in the Kit, including WWW publishing, CIFS, Telnet, NFS, File Server for Macintosh, NetWare, Indexing, and Telnet services.x x x Web UI Set date This component allows the date and time and time to be set on the server appliance. x x x Web UI Set language This feature detects the language of the first browser that connects to the appliance after first boot and automatically sets the appliance's language accordingly. A Web UI component is also provided that allows the user to change the language of the appliance manually.x x x Web UI Shutdown This Web UI component allows the user to remotely shut down or restart the appliance by using a Web browser.x x x Web UI Software update This Web UI component allows the appliance software to be updated by the user through a remote client computer. You can use this feature to control the software update process on the appliances that you create.x x x Web UI System backup This feature allows the user to back up and restore and restore the operating system files. The feature uses an ActiveX Control for the Windows Terminal Services Client to provide a system backup capability through the Web management UI from a Windows-based client computer. This feature is otherwise identical to the capability provided on Windows 2000 Server and Advanced Server.x x Web UI Users and groups This component allows the user to create, delete, and edit properties for local users and groups on the appliance by using a Web browser on a remote client computer.x x x Web UI Web UI framework The Web UI framework allows you to develop your own Web content, which will plug into the management Web UI of the Server Appliance Kit without requiring any code changes to the Server Appliance Kit framework code. The framework provides a navigation scheme that uses a two-level tab structure with a set of main tabs, each of which contains its own set of tabs. These tabs are then used to broswe to various management task pages that can be used to configure and monitor the appliance.
