Does linux run bat files like DOS
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 3, 2007
Just getting started with Linux. Does Linux have a routine/program to run batch files like DOS does with bat files?
My question pertains to making the menu.lst boot to XP first and second to Ubuntu... I got it but I would think a simple two line bat to open it as writable then do the cut and paste for the boot sequence. Finally a one line bat to change menu.lst back to read only.
The reason I am asking is that most patches I see must be run in terminal mode. If these patches could be copy/cut and paste into a (bat) file and run it would be easier than running in terminal mode and doing all that typing and correcting my mistakes when looking back and forth from the information I am typing.
Linux equivalent of Windows Service Control Manager

Is there a Linux equivalent of Windows Service Control Manager GUI?
I know about the /sbin/service and /etc/init.d/*. But is there a GUI app that manages service like SCM in Windows? Or at least an API that I can program a GUI for?
Running RedHat if that makes any difference.
The Linux equivalent of NT domains?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 2, 2004
I'm an NT4 MCSE and thoroughly understand the Windows domain model (pre-AD). Samba connectivity to Win machines is second nature without much reading. I've got a 20-box "NT-family" network that now has 4 linux machines on it, handling our DNS and MySQL/PHP needs, but we are about to convert to all-linux, or at least 90% linux. The linux bug has bitten me hard and I'm ready to go whole-hog, tell MS to f-off forever.
Suppose I want to run an all-linux network, while still maintaining the benefits of an NT-like domain structure? Centralized domain-level user/pw management, centralized group membership, while still allowing for each machine to have a handful of "local" accounts & groups to handle tasks specific to that machine?
Beyond just share connections - suppose I would like the user "bob" to be able to log in to KDE/Gnome from any number of linux workstations on the network, without having to set up Bob on each mach

Volume Shadow Copies aka previous versions is a pretty awesome feature in Windows file servers. But my file server runs linux with samba shares. How would I implement such a feature?
Need Linux based program to monitor remote servers
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 20, 2007
About six months ago(when I was stil young and dumb ) I had a Windoze workstation at the office.I used a program to monitor the status of remote servers. It was "Servers Alive".
Now that I'm all grownup and wise, I have a Linux workstation.
Tried to install SAlive using wine. Instalation is successful, but when I run the program, it takes 10min to actually start.
Then if I want to add a server to monitor, it hangs.
Does anyone know of a similar program that I can use.
Thanx in advance.

Linux equivalent of CTRLALTDEL in Windows?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 18, 2003
When in Win98 on my Dell Dimension, I have become all too familiar with the CTRL-ALT-DEL key combination as the last refuge of scoundrels. When everything going to pieces and all is frozen, one can (most times) bail out with CTRL-ALT-DEL, bringing up a dialog box to shut down applications, or to reboot the computer. Rarely, even that doesn't work and I just have to turn off the power, then turn it back on again, and wait for scandisk to do its thing.
Now I have a dual-boot system, Libranet linux 2.8.1 on the linux partition. I know linux is legendary for its stability and lack of need for reboots. But I'm curious: if one *really* gets into trouble on Linux and needs to "bail out," what are the options? In other words, what is the equivalent of CTRL-ALT-DEL? And the equivalent of turning off the power? (I assume just turning off the power switch is a bad idea, but what would happen if you did?)
