Hi all,

this must have been discussed before but I can't find a clear answer
with Google so here it goes:

In large corporate/enterprise environments with hundreds or thousands
workstations and laptops a centralized management tool is a must and
any home-made scripting solution hacked by those two geeks working in
the basement is too fragile solution so something proven and tested
would be needed.

For RHEL there's RHN/Satellite Server (1) which probably works, for
Ubuntu there's Blueprint (2) coming, but is there anything that would
support at least a mixture of Fedora/CentOS installations and is
available free (in all meanings, ruling Satellite Server out)? Probably
something like Yum + Cfengine could be bended to do most of the work
but as said having a home made system for managing thousands of systems
doesn't sound a bright idea. And just going 100% to RHEL is not always
a solution as many developers will get benefits by using tools present
in Fedora but not in RHEL and some hardware (especially laptops) are
hard to get running without using the latest distro available.
Have you looked at Cobbler / Koan and puppet?
