LightSoft manages a network through an Element Management System (EMS)
which provides LightSoft with the information it needs to maintain the
network. At times you may need to use LightSoft to view windows from the
EMS. Normally, this would require you to log in to the EMS on the local
terminal, and locate the information manually. To make things easier and more
efficient, LightSofts GCT allows you to view EMS information without
having to start an individual EMS session.
To be integrated with Lightsoft, the EMS-BGF server, EMS-BGF client, and
LightSoft are installed on different non-global zones, as shown in the following
figure.
