comment As an admin, what tools do you use to log what you do to your boxes?
I think I entered this question knowing about how to use version control to maintain config files, but that doesn't really address my question of how to maintain the same versions of installed packages, and roll out changes and the like when bringing systems up. The suggestions to look into Puppet, Chef, PXE Boot have been very useful for me.

Thank you, that's what I want to learn about. What useful commercial and/or FOSS tools are there to automate this, and what value do they offer?
