UMA operates with these computer types:
The Universal Management Agent (UMA) program is a collection of code designed to manage computers in a network environment.
The Universal Management Browser launches and manages each tool from a central interface using ActiveX controls in an Internet or Intranet environment.
You can use the tools locally on the computer where UMA is installed or remotely by using the Internet or Intranet to access the computer where UMA is installed.
The tools that are accessible through UMA can vary from model to model based on two factors:
