No putty in self hahaha Ok I explain a little sorry for not doing before. I manage many server I mean a lot of servers, really every day I need to connect to one server that I never saw. I don't know how many servers are.. thousands... because of that I don't need any agents installation. All the servers are some *nix variants. I can't install anything on the servers...
I always use linux, home, work, etc... for some politic of the company in this job everybody uses Windows. So, I use Windows, I have a year in this job using kitty and mtputty. I hate the others putty-like + GUI server management, tends to freeze a lot or are very slow.
Ok, now as you know some of my. I will tell yo how do I work, kinda... For the frequent servers I need to manage, I add to a DB to connect more easily (with password for user and root, for automatic connections) connect to serves and copy and paste the passwords is a really pain taking into account the large number of servers. I do scripts for maintenance purpose, restart some service, and some other routine stuff... All of this the "GUI server management" makes easy with one click to launch the script for the active server window or for all servers windows.
All the servers are store orderly on folders on the mttputty (GUI server management) for easy search for servers and double click on then to connect or to connect and launch some script. But
not have any search engine, you need to scroll down or up for looking your server.
Now, why this thread? right now I can chance my workstation to Linux
so you know the story hahaha I never manage servers in great scale.
I need if possible something like that. I was testing tmux, emacs, and zsh. I use zsh for the search engine for servers and easy connection only for user not with root
emacs I always use emacs and tmux you know for what. XDD In a few days I will test cdist.
