easiest would probably be to install SSH on each remote system that you want to manage, then you could roll your own administrative script. there are free software systems like ansible and chef that have already written most of the code for you. of course you could do something even easier like just opening a port (socket listen) and waiting for connections, but securing that port is very difficult and you risk inadvertently opening your systems to remote attack.


thanks @Ryan, I worked on chef, its a great tool but comes with limitations of number of syatema can be managed. how can this be done? let's keep security on hold for initial phase.
