helpful admin utilities

Novell forums community poll:
As far as OES Linux compatible utility suites, what are your favorite "must have" standalone utilities or commercial suite of utilities available from other vendors that you would recommend that simplify or improve OES management? For example, JRB software makes one such suite. Thanks in advance.

DNS/DHCP Management Console and ConsoleOne. I use these every day and
they are much easier and much quicker than iManager. I would really
hate to lose these utilities.

I find I can manage DHCP better using LDAP utilities or custom Perl scripts
(that use LDAP modules), certainly for bulk management stuff.

One of the things I use is Xming and putty. If you enable X11
forwarding in putty and run XMing on your workstation (assuming you are
using Windows as a OS on your workstation) you can run things like
yast2 and other graphical tools.

Re: helpful admin utilities

Same here + WinSCP to manage the Linux part of the filesystem incl.
editing the config files and viewing the log files.

Have a look at this:
http://dokan-dev.net/en/download/#sshfs

It allows you to map drives via SSH. Saves you having to copy stuff
with winscp or enable samba.

Re: helpful admin utilities

Has anyone else tried this Dokan utility? It looks interesting. However, I'm not familiar with the software or the vendor. I don't want to install something that isn't vetted and could be a security risk. Any input is appreciated.

Have a look at this:
Dokan » Download

for these file management needs we just create NCP share of the system
root for admins, access like other network drives on Win machines..

Re: helpful admin utilities

All of the feedback is nice. However, in addition to freeware utilities that are helpful, what commercial software have ones found to be useful in addition to JRB's software? If you use JRB software successfully, however, feel free comment on that as well.

Re: helpful admin utilities

Here's an example of several utilities from one vendor, some free and some licensed software by HBware -
Products

Anybody have experience with these utilities?
