SADMS (Samba as Active Directory Member Server/Station) makes it easy to add a Linux host to an Active Directory Domain. As a domain member, the Linux host can then offer resources (shares) to the domain hosts and offload authentication to the domain (making it unnecessary to have local user accounts). SADMS takes care of changing configuration files to achieve this.
Awesum is a graphical checksum verification utility. It is very easy to use and includes support for both MD5 and SHA checksum algorithms. Unlike many checksum verification utilities, it features a progress bar that makes working with large files (such as CD-ROM ISO images) much more bearable.
SBackup is a simple backup solution intended for desktop use. It can back up any subset of files and directories. Exclusions can be defined by regular expressions. A maximum individual file size limit can be defined. Backups may be saved to any local and remote directories that are supported by gnome-vfs.
WebDhcpDns is a Web interface for managing DHCP/DNS configuration on a network split into different VLANs. It manipulates isc-dhcpd3 and mydns configuration to assign machines to specific VLANs according to their MAC address. It was made to allow administrators to delegate the DHCP/DNS configuration to temporary administrators without giving them direct access to the servers or the configuration files. LDAP authentication is also available.
PiSi is a modern package manager for UNIX systems. It has been designed to meet the requirements of the Pardus Linux distribution, and it is not derived from any other package manager. It is efficient and small. Package sources are written in XML and Python. Fast database access is implemented with Berkeley DB. It integrates both low-level and high-level package operations. Sources can be maintained easily through a version control system as original sources do not have to be copied. It uses a framework approach to build applications and tools upon. It has both a comprehensive CLI and a user-friendly Qt-based GUI.
Zenoss is an enterprise network/systems management application that provides an integrated software package for monitoring availability, performance, events, and configuration across layers (network, servers, applications, environment, etc.) and across platforms (Linux, Windows, Unix, etc.).
MDS (Mandriva Directory Server), along with the Mandriva Management Console (MMC), is a powerful system that allows developers, system administrators, and other software vendors to manage users, groups, and their associated policies in both OpenLDAP server and Fedora Directory Server which allows multi-master replication. Its highly ergonomic interface design makes it very easy to use, and delegation of administration enables medium size organization to adopt MDS.
