The Lazy Admin (or TLA) is an Open Source remote management tool for system administrators. It can be used to gather live data about machines on your network for which you have administrator access to. TLA also offers Active Directory tools, such as searching computers bound by name, searching for users by last name or [...]

The Lazy Admin v.7 has been released! This version isn’t a huge release but I still feel it warranted a whole .version number, simply because it has another long requested feature: the ability to start a remote process! (Sorry, I don’t have a vista or XP theme:) Please see the changelog for more information. Again, [...]

The project is not dead, promise:) A new version is coming soon. Things have been busy lately, sorry for the long delay & no updates. My friend from across the pond has sent me some more updates, I will incorporate those as well as add my own updates. Stay tuned!

TLA v.6.1 has been released. This “spring cleaning” version of TLA just does a little house keeping/more bug fixes. Most noticeably is the new icons (see previous post) and some menu changes. I made a menu for batch queries (in hopes to expand those features) and grayed out some features that weren’t available depending on [...]

New icons coming to TLA. Special thanks to the Tango Desktop project people. Now all I need is a nice application icon (hint hint).

User logged in reporting error

There is an error in the latest version (and probably all versions of TLA) in the logged-in user component. TLA reports that the user running TLA is the person logged in on the remote computer. This is known to at least affect Vista, and possibly XP. I believe it’s due to the fast-user switching. I’ll [...]

The Lazy Admin v.6 (Mike B release) is out! I’m calling this the Mike B release since a “bloke” from the UK named Mike B is responsible for it. He worked on TLA and sent the code over my way. Check out the process manager! His fixes to the process manager also closed some bugs/todo’s [...]

This is turning out to be a terrible release – the .5.x series. Is .5 and the number 13 related somehow? the current version, .5.1 has a bug in it that was no previously a bug. .5.1 reports an inaccurate uptime. So inaccurate, it takes place in the future! The uptime returns 0 days and [...]

Lazy Admin v.5.1 Released! [update/repair of v.5]

This is a minor update (or fix depending on your configuration). Actually, it’s a downgrade. I had to remove the save and open file features in the batch query option. In order to use the file dialog box an additional OCX file was required. As you probably know one of the goals of TLA is [...]

A long awaited feature is now available in version .5! That feature is batch query! You can now query multiple computers. TLA takes input from a plain text file, or you may paste a list of hostnames in. Computers are separated by blank lines. You also have the option to save the output to a [...]
