Administering Windows Media Services

You can administer Windows Media Services in a variety of ways depending on your needs and your environment. Windows Media Services can be administered by using the following interfaces:

Once you have selected an administration method, you can manage the settings of your Windows Media server. These settings control the delivery of content to your client and may apply to properties, plug-ins, publishing points, and server-side playlists.

If you use a network management console, such as Hewlett Packard HP OpenView, Compaq Insight Manager XE, and Dell OpenManage, you can receive events through Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) and Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI). With these events, you can keep apprised of server activity and react quickly to situations as they arise. To learn more about options for monitoring events, see Monitoring performance.
