A lot of locations are mandating that you stop connecting to the system with Telnet, and use SSH instead.
The maintenance network is used by OpenVOS for monitoring several devices including the RAID and SAN disk arrays.
If you have ever tried to use POSIX-based programs to process VOS structured files, you may have encountered some restrictions or seen some behavior that you didn’t understand.
