cfg2html for Linux

Latest response

Can we add cfg2html to RHEL or EPEL repos?

cfg2html is a UNIX shell script similar to supportinfo, getsysinfo or get_config, except that it creates a HTML (and plain ASCII) system documentation for HP-UX, SCO-UNIX, AIX, Sun OS and Linux systems. Plug-ins for SAP, Oracle, Informix, Serviceguard, Fiber Channel/SAN, TIP/ix, OpenText (IXOS/LEA), SN Mass Storage like MAS, EMC, EVA, XPs, Netwo…

You may open a new ticket here: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/

Hi Vicent,

The packages you mention are based on an outdated version of Cfg2html. http://www.cfg2html.com/ contains links to the original maintainer sites.

I would suggest to open a support ticket at https://access.redhat.com and open a RFE (Request for Extention).

Kind regards,

Jan Gerrit Kootstra

In general, if there's something you'd like to see in EPEL that isn't there, you can always contribute to the community and become the EPEL maintainer for that desired "something". ;)

It is quite handy tool, as I've been using it long time back with AIX, Solaris and of course to Debian, Redhat & other Linux variant. As it can create a html document, it is handy to used it with docuwiki.

Did you have a look at System Configuration Collector ( http://sysconfcollect.sourceforge.net/ and https://sourceforge.net/projects/sysconfcollect )?
SCC structures collected configuration data and produces an html file with the system configuration and a logbook with detected changes.

Vinnie - long time no here from - and yes - Red Hat being enterprise is most definitely missing some quality system configuration reporting tools. Too many years of working on other enterprise platforms has taught us this. Cheers Buddie (Ash@Unisys) - maybe now IBM owns it, it may change.....

Vinnie in addition - recent changes to containers/cloud/automation and other new environments to the basic Linux platform has left these system config tools looking very very old and useless. Many are long over due for an overhaul.
