Hello there!

I am looking for opinions about implementing an
out-of-band management network. I am talking about
dual homing NICs of web/db servers, routers, switches,
etc. - to both production network and management

Can someone tell me the main reason for implementing
OOB? Any security implications I should be aware of?

Thank you all in advance!
