I'm new to Ubuntu networking and I am wondering if there are methods for me to do the following with Ubuntu.
- Maintain Network users and a single network admin.
- Maintain Software state between machines, all clients must have same software that can only be modified by the Admin.
- Maintain config file state between machines.
Again, the software states of each of the computers should be equal at all times, and the software state can only be modified by the admin. Each users will have storage space on network drives on a central server.
Right now I have 6 Ubuntu 12.04 machines on the same local area network, I would like to have one server and 5 client machines that follow the constraints above. If somebody could give me some advice or at least a general guideline to follow to accomplish this type of system, that would be excellent.
