#17 Multi webmin server group membership

Roland Pope

I would like to be able to make a webmin server a
member of more than one webmin server group. This
would allow me to setup something like this:

Group=All - All webmin Servers
Group=RH - All RedHat Servers
Group=SuSE - All SuSE Servers
Group=DNS - All Bind DNS Servers
Group=Webservers - All Apache Web servers.

Then say if HostA was a RedHat server running Bind
and Apache, I could make it a member of All,RH,DNS
and Webservers. While if HostB was a SuSE server
running Apache, I could make it a member of All,SuSE
and Webservers.

    Maybe hosts could be automatically placed into one a group
    according to it's operating system ie. "RedHat Linux", and
    another according to it's release Version ie. "RedHat Linux

    These is actually already a way to do this, although the UI
    is not too friendly. If the directory /etc/cluster/groups
    exists, each file in it will define a group, named after the
    file. Each file must contain a list of hostnames, as defined
    in the module, and a host can appear in multiple groups.
    However, I will implement a nicer UI for this in the next
    Webmin release :-)
