Tracking assets on a linux box
Can anyone please help me? I am writing a program to track assets accross a network. My test network comprises of: Windows 2000, Windows 2000 Server, Windows XP, RED HAT 9 and a MAC.
I have managed to write a program to pull info out of the Windows Registry but im at a loss as to how to accomplish this for the linux and the mac. Can anyone help me here or point me in the right direction? Does linux have an equivalent to the Windows Registry? Someone sugested looking at the Enviromental variables?
Any help that anyone could provide would be very appriciated
