Question: Which two of the following are considered benefits for out-of-band management over in-band management?
A. Separation of user from management traffic
B. Additional network components
C. No consumption of user bandwidth
D. Open management network
E. Use of authentication servers
Answer: A and C
Explanation: Out-of-band management has a separate path dedicated to the function of management. Therefore, it is not consuming bandwidth that would normally be for end user traffic. Also, since the out-of-band interface could be attached to a separate closed network, with that separation of the user traffic and management traffic, there is less risk of attack and unauthorized access into the devices.
