3. Business Case
IBM, other major corporations and The Open Group are all developing to the DTMF standard for WEBM.
Many vendors have several products that require the OpenPegasus CIMOM for Linux. Other companies
building product around WBEM technology include: HP, Sun, Cisco, Microsoft, Tivoli, SMARTs, Veritas,
Oracle, and others. They are building benefit because of: remote management of multiple networked
devices, object-base (with methods) allows uniform base management for different platforms, full
indication support, and a huge number of classes already defined. Pegasus is a vital part of this
WBEM infrastructure. This technology is mature, well-tested and shipped in many system management
products. As a result, OpenPegasus does not require a community 'try-out' of the technology, and
should be considered for inclusion directly into a RHEL release.

2.7.1 is currently in Fedora.
FWIW, we've noticed more requests to move to something like openwsman as opposed to tog-pegasus.
With IBM's permission, opening up this BZ to HP so that they can collaborate on the testing of TOG-Pegasus for RHEL 6.
Latest release for OpenPegasus is 2.9:
which is the preferred level if this is accepted for RHEL6.

Looks like 2.9.2 should hopefully be the target for RHEL 6
