CipUX

CipUX is a framework for server administration. With CipUX tools you can solve daily administration tasks easily. There are several layers of tools for users with different skills.

http://source.cipux.org/pix.cipux.org/logo/CipUX-3.2.6_72dpi.png

CipUX is made up of several parts: on bottom is the LDAP server. On top of that, the LDAP abstraction layer CipUX::Storage can be found. The layer for handling generic CipUX objects comes afterwards: CipUX::Object. On the top the CipUX::Task module delivers daily administration task functions to different institutions: (1) The graphical CAT user interface. (2) The CipUX shell command line, and (3) the XML-RPC daemon.

CipUX interfaces:

CipUX-Shell-Tasks

  • There are over 242 ?CipUX command line task commands which may be used by a semi-experienced administrator. They may be used for creating new tasks, writing macros, or defining cron jobs.

  • You can use cipux_task_client to access them.

CipUX/low level commands:

  • These very powerful commands give access to every single value of the LDAP database for high skilled users, without needing expert LDAP knowledge.
  • cipux_storage_client
  • cipux_object_client

CipUX/XML-RPC daemon:

  • Other applications may also use CipUX for administration tasks, even over the network, by using its remote procedure calls.
