FUNC - Fedora Unified Network Controller

FUNC is an open source automation tool developed by using Python programming language. We can use this tool for automating system admin tasks such as status check, configuration tweak, file transfer, rebooting the systems etc in multiple Linux-based systems. It uses the typical Client-Server model, where the server is called by the term "overlord" and the clients which are binded to the server are called as "minions".

Check out this link for more details with examples:

I have developed an Installation bundle which consists of Script for installing and configuring the FUNC client with all the required packages. URL to download the software bundle :

Just download it, extract and install the FUNC client by executing the '' script.

PS: If you are looking for a definitive solution on permanent basis to address all your challenges in remote administration of Linux-based servers, I would recommend to go for "Puppet" ( . With Puppet, you can achieve lot more things than FUNC. URL to download a book on Puppet:

  1. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but
    I find this matter to be actually something which I
    think I would never understand. It seems too complex
    and extremely broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post,
    I'll try to get the hang of it!
