Detailed description

The OpenLMI project provides a common infrastructure for the management of Linux systems. The goal is to add the missing parts that would enable remote management of a Fedora system:

  • Complete the CIM storage API to allow for a better remote storage management
  • Add a new provider and extend the existing ones to allow for a remote hardware information retrieval (HW inventory)
  • Add a new provider that would allow for a remote AD/Kerberos realms enrollment
  • Add a new provider that would allow for a remote Firewall management (open/close a particular port) through firewalld
  • Improve the software management in OpenLMI to allow for a comprehensive remote package management
  • Add and improve the remote system monitoring using OpenLMI
  • Improve the OpenLMI Shell to allow for a quick and easy scriptable remote management
  • Allow to use OpenLMI under selinux enforcing policy

Benefit to Fedora

It's going to be easier to manage and monitor a remote Fedora system.

Scope

OpenLMI providers and tools, the CIMOMS (tog-pegasus, sblim-sfcb), SBLIM providers

How To Test

Test suite would be provided with the OpenLMI project.

User Experience

The sysadmins will get a better infrastructure for a remote systems maintenance and monitoring.

Dependencies

Many of the planned features depend on the development of the other components: Anaconda's Blivet library, realmd, firewalld, NetworkManager; in the case those would not contain the required features we are not able to create a management infrastructure above them.

Contingency Plan

N/A

Documentation

Provided in the packages and on the OpenLMI project pages.

Release Notes

The OpenLMI infrastructure has been greatly improved: new storage API, monitoring, hardware information, realmd, firewall providers were added. Improvements in the existing providers.
