DOD OKs HP's OpenView to manage DMS

The Defense Department has adopted Hewlett-Packard OpenView Network Node Manager as its primary tool for managing the classified Defense Message System.

The Defense Information Systems Agency licensed about 350 copies of the software for some of the 600-plus sites running DMS. HP did not modify OpenView for DOD, which already had a large pool of workers familiar with the software, officials said.

When completed in 2003, DMS will have 100,000 users in all service branches and will handle traffic classified up to the top-secret level, replacing the AUTODIN system.
