Quest Identity Manager for Unix lets you remotely manage local users and groups on Unix, Linux, and Mac systems. It lets you find and manage existing local Unix users and groups throughout your environment through a single, centralized management console. You can create new local Unix users and groups throughout your environment from the same centralized management console. Local Unix user and group information can be securely managed over SSH. The management console can be run from Unix, Linux, Windows, or Mac platforms and any of the most common Web browsers. Quest Identity Manager for Unix can provide granular reports on Unix identity information, including local Unix users, local user conflicts, and all members of specific Unix groups. It can uncover rogue or unused local accounts.
The Clacks Framework enables implementators to abstractly manage infrastructure entities, such as users, groups, machines and structure items. These are freely defineable and mappable to various backends like LDAP or MongoDB. Additionally it can handle joined clients, collect inventory data, and manage these clients in various ways. All information, API, and events are exposed on an AMQP message bus, and can be used by shell scripts, Web GUIs, etc.
