Status of this Memo

   This memo defines a network management architecture that uses the
   International Organization for Standardization's (ISO) Common
   Management Information Services/Common Management Information
   Protocol (CMIS/CMIP) in the Internet.  This RFC specifies an IAB
   standards track protocol for the Internet community, and requests
   discussion and suggestions for improvements.  Please refer to the
   current edition of the "IAB Official Protocol Standards" for the
   standardization state and status of this protocol.

   Distribution of this memo is unlimited.

1.  Overview

   This memo is a revision of RFC 1095 - "The Common Management
   Information Services and Protocol over TCP/IP" [27].  It defines a
   network management architecture that uses the International
   Organization for Standardization's (ISO) Common Management
   Information Services/Common Management Information Protocol
   (CMIS/CMIP) in the Internet.  This architecture provides a means by
   which control and monitoring information can be exchanged between a
   manager and a remote network element.  In particular, this memo
   defines the means for implementing the International Standard (IS)
   version of CMIS/CMIP on top of both IP-based and OSI-based Internet
   transport protocols for the purpose of carrying management
   information defined in the Internet-standard management information
   base.  Together with the relevant ISO standards and the companion
   RFCs that describe the initial structure of management information
   and management information base, these documents provide the basis
   for a comprehensive architecture and system for managing both IP-
   based and OSI-based internets, and in particular the Internet.

   In creating this revision of RFC 1095, the following technical and
   editorial changes were made:

      1) The tutorial section on OSI Management included in RFC 1095
         has been removed from this document.  After some revisions,
         the tutorial material may be published as another RFC.

      2) The sections in RFC 1095 which discussed the semantics of how
         to interpret requests in the context of Internet MIBs has been
         removed from this protocol document.  This topic is now
         discussed in the OIM-MIB-II draft document.  This protocol
         should be useable with MIB-I or MIB-II.  But, it will also be
         able to exploit the new features of the OIM-MIB-II.

      3) This document is based on the final International Standards
         for CMIS/CMIP (ISO 9595/9596) rather than the Draft
         International Standards.

      4) Many of the original agreements defined in RFC 1095 have been
         accepted and included in the OIW NMSIG implementers agreements.
         Rather than duplicating these agreements, they have been removed
