Sunflower Sysadmin Toolkit Live CD


Sunflower Sysadmin Toolkit Live CD is a Linux rescue system with a large number of system utilities. This Live CD also contains FreeDOS operating system. System administrators and power users can use this Live CD to repair server/workstation system issues, upgrade system firmwares, rescue disks data, benchmark/examine system performance and so on.

I created this Live CD based on Fedora x86_64 arch distribution.

I'm a system administrator working at a computer software company. Precisely my daily job is to make servers/workstations run properly in the labs. So when any part of system has an issue I must resolve it as soon as possible. At this moment I have to collect necessary tools and utilities for troubleshooting. I reliazed that it would cost much time when I collected tools. So that's why I got an idea to create a Live CD environment to help sysadmins get rid of that situation. Just one Live CD can cover most jobs.

The reason why I did not use LFS or Fedora's livecd-tools to build a Live CD is I need a way to develop this project rapidly but can still reserve flexible custom modes.

I need your feedback! If you have any good idea or find bugs please contact me without any hesitate.
