Administrating Large Banks of PCs
How do you administrate large banks of PCs?
I'm wondering, for instance, if you have 50 computers, and your boss is like, "YELL YELL YELL, SHOUT YELL, DO apt-get install yourjobsucks ON EVERY COMPUTER IMMEDIATELY!"
What's the standard practice to achieve this? Do you keep all the computers IPs statci and keep a list of them? Do you initialize them all with a naming pattern? How do you remotely execute code on them all, do you keep a shared password for all the systems, or do something sneakier?
