I have not messed with managing Linux computers in a corporate environment. I am however, very familiar with windows administration tools such as WSUS, Group Policy, Active Dir..etc. Are there similar tools available to help manage several Linux computers, basically tools used to help administrate a linux enviroment? I would like to be able to define what updates can be pushed out, lock down specific things, example apply a business background, map network drives..etc. Can any one supply me some names of some of these tools ect. Any information you can provide would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!!

I am interested in this too. You mention many related items - you need to investigate LDAP. I think apt-proxy or apt-cache will be involved also. It appears autoyast is used by novell,so perhaps googling that will reveal something. https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-users/2006-January/062807.html http://www.thelazysysadmin.net/2009/06/opensuse-autoyast-autoinstall-howto-part-1/ As for 'group policy',patch management and locking down boxes im struggling to find info. EDIT: Found some more. 2.7.5. Automatic download and upgrade of packages http://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/debian-reference/ch02.en.html#_automatic_download_and_upgrade_of_pa ckages 2.7.11. Proxy server for APT http://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/debian-reference/ch02.en.html#_proxy_server_for_apt
