You need to be more specific; what exactly will you want to do? There surely is no program that does anything you can imagine your question to include, but if you can tell what you want to achieve, I'm quite sure there are some tools to help you out. I'm just wondering why a single person would deal with over 80 servers, that's so big an amount that I myself would consider hiring more people to prevent catastrophes from happening every other day.
It's been claimed that computers can't do this or that; anyway somebody, can't right now remember who but search engines know, once said that it's just a matter of declaration; if you can specify exactly what you want to achieve, computer can be made do so. So in the end it's just a matter of being exact.
Well for now the hardest part is to create, disable, delete, add rights to directories and services to differents accounts.
For example I need to created an account that have the same thing on 10 servers and another in just 20 and so on.
That is just one part.
Then it is the monitoring thing. I'm implementing nagios ang works great. Now I just need to implement monitoring on each server by using nrpe and check cpu, services, disk, log errors etc.
and then I need to provide reports and balance loads on an oracle cluster along with the a fiberchannel infrastructure for the backup.
I have already something implementing, but you know it is good to hear the opinon of other people. So this is the more less the first part to implement. For now I just looking for something to administrate accounts on the servers.
