Registration for services from a management entity: In a BladeChassis system, a structured list for user management entity authorization and function access control is created and maintained in the chassis management entity by an administrator with blade chassis management authority. The entries of the list will be based on management services offered by the provider and those made available to specific user entities based on service agreement, separate management service/function options, resources currently allocated to the user, etc. The management entity uses this list to perform user entity authorization and access control for access to provided management functions .
