After you create your remote management strategy and determine your tools and configurations, the remaining step is to plan for deployment, as illustrated in Figure 5.12.
Figure 5.12 Planning for Remote Management Deployment
If you decide to use Emergency Management Services for out-of-band management, evaluate your existing server hardware to determine whether it supports the out-of-band functionality you need. After you decide whether to use your existing hardware or to purchase new servers or components, you can decide how you want to install the Windows Server 2003 operating system on your remote servers. Then you need to test your plan in a lab environment and identify the tasks that you need to perform to implement your plan.
