Introduction With the technology of telecommunication network developing and the size of communication network enlarging constantly, network management needs additional requirements. To satisfy these needs of quality and performance, it is necessary to achieve an attended management network by advance software. The Artificial Intelligent is incorporated to the network management to provide the task of control and administration. OSI and Internet are dominant network management models, which

Network management activities, such as fault, security, performance, etc. have performed for network management models. These activities are becoming supplementary functionalities in the network management, direct expert system involvement. Traditional intelligent management technologies can play an import role in the problems solving and reasoning techniques employed in network management. However, these systems are not flexible enough for today's evolving network needs. It is necessary to develop new models, which offer more possibilities. We propose a hybrid solution that employs both managed model and AI reasoning technique for the management of heterogeneous distributed information networks. We present a new concept called Integrated Management Expert System that employs both managed model and AI reasoning techniques for the intelligent management of heterogeneous networks. This new paradigm contains aspects which clearly make the difference from the former management techniques which uses separately expert systems and management platforms. We propose the normalization of the knowledge management necessary to administrate the resources that exist in the networks independently from the builder of the management resources. The goal is to get a syntactically uniformed definition of all the management knowledge supplied by the expert, independently from the maker. The novelty comes from the fact that the employed knowledge for the networks management (conditions and management operations to achieve on the different resources) is included and normalised itself in the definitions of the network elements and is treated as if it were a propriety. So, we realise syntactically uniformed normalization of intelligence applied to the management. This technique integrates the Expert System within the Management Information Base. The advantage is that a large problem can be broken down into smaller Open Access Database www.i-
