Submission + - Recommendations for Open Source Network Management (wikipedia.org)

mnmlst writes: I have about 200 workstations and a dozen servers to manage with minimal staff, too many power users, and zero budget for Network Management tools. The desktops and most of the servers are Windows. It's an education facility, so we have a lot of staff and user turnover. The IT support staff would appreciate learning to use network management tools that will give them portable skills when they move on to a job that has a budget for such tools. Who knows, maybe they will be the pioneers that bring open source network management to their future employers? A quick search turned up Open PC Server Integration (OPSI), OpenNMS, and Nagios. We don't have scripting skills (yet), so it shouldn't be a pseudo DIY suite. What products have you tried and worked for you? What would you recommend?
