Which value for a ManagerAccount's AccountTypes most closely aligns with the "Web based console KVM"? Should that be KVMIP, HostConsole or WebUI?
My assumption is "KVMIP", but it's not clear to me if HostConsole is more accurate.
For context, we have a server vendor that currently uses an OEM extension for toggling access to the KVM and we'd rather use Redfish for this.
string Description HostConsole Allow access to the host's console, which could be connected through Telnet, SSH, or other protocol. IPMI Allow access to the Intelligent Platform Management Interface service. KVMIP Allow access to a Keyboard-Video-Mouse over IP session. ManagerConsole Allow access to the manager's console, which could be connected through Telnet, SSH, SM CLP, or other protocol. OEM OEM account type. See the OEMAccountTypes property. Redfish Allow access to the Redfish service. SNMP Allow access to SNMP services. VirtualMedia Allow access to control virtual media. WebUI Allow access to a web user interface session, such as a graphical interface or another web-based protocol.
In your case, you may need both "WebUI" and "KVMIP"; "WebUI" would be needed just to access the web interface, and "KVMIP" would be needed to launch the KVM portion from the web interface. There's a distinction because it's possible to have a KVM solution as something independent from the web console, such as launching a VNC client natively on a laptop.
The intent was for that to be "KVMIP" as the general "graphical console redirection", while "HostConsole" was expected to be text-based or terminal emulation modes (SSH/Telnet/Serial). And "WebGUI" was just that - any web-based GUI - which could include views of console(s) depending on the implementation...
If you have any suggestions for improving those descriptions, we'd take them!
