They are a mix of Red Hat and CentOS 5.x, I'd like to have something on one host that can check basics like cpu/mem/disk hardware, Model, HW RAID controllers, etc would be nice.
I have key based ssh authentication set up, but I do not want to have to install anything on these hosts. Worst case, I could scp something to /tmp, but no install please.
Near as I can see, either I need to install something, or it is something really basic that I would run on the machine, and then manually aggregate.
Am I stuck writing some Perl to run and process the output of dmidecode, lspci, etc?
If I do, I'll put it up someplace, and link to it.
