Projects / Admin4


Admin4 is a tool for server maintenance via several plugin modules, running on Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, and many more platforms. Currently, plugins for BIND DNS, LDAP, and PostgreSQL are included. It is designed as a framework, using Python for fast development of plugins and custom modifications. The DNS plugin should be able to query (axfr) any type of server, and performs updates via DDNS, which ensures that it won't interfere with other DDNS clients (DHCP, SAMBA4). For BIND 9.7 and up, statistics are supported as well and used to retrieve the server's zones automatically. The LDAP plugin features browsing and generic editing of all types of LDAP entries with schema support. In addition, high-level editing of objects like users, groups and samba domains is supported. Custom objectClasses and attributes can easily be added. The PostgreSQL module features a query tool with centrally stored snippets, a data tool with filter presets and a database object browser.

    Release Notes: This release has an object find function that lets you locate objects in the browser tree faster. The LDAP and PostgreSQL module enhance this feature, by not just scanning the tree, but searching the database and populating the object browser tree if necessary.

        Release Notes: This release features an update mechanism that lets you update/install single modules or the whole application without downloading the full package. While complete OS-specific packages will continue to be provided, you'll only have to download the source package and apply it via the update mechanism. modBind has a fix that might prevent loading. modLdap has no additional changes, except for preparation for the update mechanism.
