I am looking for a strategy to collect *NIX accounts in G&L. We have about 50 Linux, AIX, UNIX servers which we need to collect accounts from. I have a script working which copies (scp) the /etc/passwd and /etc/group files to the G&L server and then parse them with a simple Java class to get them into a .csv file for import into G&L via an Account Collector.
I kind of feel that this is a bit of a hack and am looking for a more elegant solution (less scripting). Can I use and agent for this? Are there any other options?
Thanks in advance.
