S.4 Partially managed devices

It is likely that some devices will support only some of the system management profiles. A typical example of such partial support is a node that supports:

  1. DHCP Client,

  2. DNS Client, and

  3. NTP Client

Configurations like this are common because many operating system platforms provide complete tools for implementing these clients. The support for LDAP Client requires application support and is often released on a different cycle than the operating system support. These devices will still have their DICOM application manually configured, but will utilize the DHCP, DNS, and NTP services.
