Automated HW/SW inventory.
Like the forum, been lurking for a bit, but now have a question I can't find an answer to.
The important boss types have asked me to inventory all of the hardware, software, versions, etc. on our Linux systems. This would be no problem if we didn't have 30+ systems. I know I'm going to have to visit every system anyway, but I'd like to automate as much as possible to save time and energy.
Does anyone know of a program or script that will generate this info and stick it in a file? The main things I need to know are:
types of hardware, serial #'s if possible, resources used.
In particular, SCSI BIOS versions, etc.
IMHO, all of this crap should have been logged already, and there should only be one version of Linux and the Kernels across the servers, but we don't alwas get to work on systems that have been implemented properly, so I'm stuck.
Any help would be great. Thanks!
