I work with a linux estate of 700 clients (a mix of HP Gt7725 thin clients running debian Linux and HP DC72 clients running an embedded Linux OS), i am struggling to find a Support friendly looking utility or tool for central administration of these devices.

I would like to be able to view all the devices (OS details, box details, serial numbers etc), as well as the ability to remotely flash over the network, report on them, seperate in to geographically located groups etc.

HP Device Manager does this but not for clients running an embedded version of Linux. I am quite new to the Linux world, so appreciate any help or advice.
