Yes, it can be changes to a txt file. but in my next release the program itself will modify the mdb file. and m$ access will not be required at all. the mdb file will also be encrypted for security reasons.

New version ready for download:

http://ghp.homelinux.net/contribs/NRSM


I have added the ability to change the ssh port on a per server basis.
Servers are now added in the program, no need for ms access.
Server passwords are now encrypted in the database.
Server host keys are now added to the registry automatically.

The howto.txt changed a bit.

Please help me with some feedback or ideas.

Hi, thanks for this contrib. Really like what it's going to become.

It is working ok on a XP installation with sp3, but I can't add 2 servers on the same domian.
Do I have a problem or is that how it is at the moment? - it will be great to add as many servers per domain as required.
SME Server is a fantastic product - thank you!

You can actually add more than one server to the same domain.

Add them as follow:

Domain:                 mydomain.co.za[1]
Server host name:   host1.mydomain.co.za

Domain:                 mydomain.co.za[2]
Server host name:   host2.mydomain.co.za

Let me know if you don't come right.

Gert,

Worked just as you said - thanks.
'Nother thing, I have a gateway server where I've set "Allow secure shell access using standard passwords" to "No"
This one won't make an ssh connection to NRSM unless there is a way to add a ssh private key file.

SME Server is a fantastic product - thank you!

Yes, this won't work for now. Ill look into it. For now maybe allow standard passwords and change the ssh port to something else, like 8022 or whatever.

It uses putty.exe and plink.exe. But the program installs them automatically in the windows dir. See if they are there. It works fine with local ip addresses.

Gert,

I just installed affa on one of my machines. I know NRSM can monitor it and somewhere I saw the instructions how to set it up. Now for some reason I cannot find them. Would you be so kind as to point me in the right direction?

Thanks,
Royce

Got it. Should we add this to the contribs documentation?
