Cinv was formerly known under name the of sexy.
Cinv is the Swiss Army Knife for inventory management. It allows you to manage hosts and network with a simple command line interface.
Cinv stores inventory information in a cconfig database and adapts to your environment by supporting custom backends.
In short, cinv can create and remove hosts and configure networks - depending on your backend this means:
- cinv manages Virtual Machines
- cinv generates IPv4 address allocation (DHCP)
- cinv sets up your domain name system (DNS)
The release process for cinv version 2.0 has started and is planned to happen in November 2012.
Download cinv from git (gitweb):
% git clone git://git.schottelius.org/cinv
Afterwards ensure that the bin directory is in your PATH and that you have python3 installed:
% which python3 /usr/bin/python3 % cd cinv % export PATH=$PATH:$(pwd -P)/bin
Now you should be able to display the current cinv version:
% cinv -V cinv 1.9.11-1-g837532c
