Full Version: Linux Server Inventory
Linuxhelp > Support > Technical Support
I am a newbie to Linux and am responsible for some Linux servers that form part of the network. The network in itself is Windows based.

I need to do a complete inventory of all Linux servers. Is there a software that can do the inventory of all servers in one go, or one by one? I want to know what all is installed on the servers and the configuration.

I appreciate any help I can get.
SSH is the key to you're problem smile.gif

On page 1-5 you'll find a post about ssh, how to configure etc. Check it out.

But it's also possible that it's already set up

try typing ssh in console and see what happens, if the help pops out.

then just type ssh IP of the computer, and there you have it, you are on that computer, and can do everything want smile.gif


in /etc/ssh/sshd_config
make sure that you use PROTOCOL 2 only! , protocol 1 has some security issues.

Are the linux servers RPM based? (What is the distro).

If it is an rpm based distro, the command:

rpm -qa > installed.txt

will give you a list of installed packages...
uname -r > kernel.txt

will tell you the booted kernel
lsmod > loaded_modules.txt

will tell you all loaded kernel modules
You can then read all the text files and copy them where ever you want...
