Univention Management Console: Rapid and high-performance

Start page of the modern, Ajax technology-based Univention Management Console (UMC), which unites the system administration, administration of domains and virtualization management in one web interface. It offers a convenient single point of administration and a variety of interfaces for the integration of additional functions. UMC module for navigation in the directory service

It is possible here, for example, to create and edit individual structures with containers and different organisational units (OUs) with specific settings as well. The focus is on the administration of objects such as users, computers, groups or networks. The different features of objects are arranged in thematically coordinated groups of settings, which can be dynamically shown and hidden. In this way, even complex objects with many features and settings can be displayed clearly.

Displays and search functions can be preconfigured to suit personal requirements: users can thus preset the most often used search parameters. An important feature of the UMC is the customisable, structured user prompting. This makes it possible for work flows often repeated with the UMC, for example navigation in search results, to be performed more quickly.

UMC module for domain-wide user management

The different attributes for all objects are separated into categories and distributed across tabs. This keeps the web front-end clear and the individual options can be located quickly using the corresponding names on the tabs. All attributes are easy to find, even for objects with a considerable number of setting possibilities, such as user objects.

UMC module for group management

Group administration is used to create, search, edit and delete groups. New and existing group members can be located easily with strong filter functions and added or deleted. Additionally, the assignment of users to groups is also possible directly on the user objects. UCS supports nested groups (“groups in groups”) and the assignment of e-mail addresses to groups too.

UMC module: Univention App Center

The Univention App Center allows the easy installation of software components for UCS. The applications are provided by third-party manufacturers as well as by Univention.

UMC module for printer management

Just like users or hosts, printers are also represented by objects. In the printer object it is possible to specify, for example, printer type and drivers, but it is also possible to define complex print quotas (access restrictions) and page prices.

UMC module for share management

UMC module for configuration and administration of policies

Policy objects are part of a central, strong concept in UCS, which can be used to facilitate the administration considerably particularly in larger environments, but also structure it very clearly in smaller installations. One example for this is the “Univention Directory Manager View” policy, which is used to configure the available functions and views of UMC module “Navigation” even for individual users or groups of users.

UMC module: UCS Active Directory Connector

This UMC module is used to set the most important variable for the application of the Active Directory Connector, the link between the UCS management system and the Microsoft Active Directory uncomplicatedly.

UMC module: UCS Virtual Machine Manager (UVMM)

The UMC module Univention Virtual Machine Manager (UVMM) is used for the central administration of physical servers and virtual machines. Among other functions, UVMM can be used to create, start, stop, migrate and delete virtual systems quickly and simply. Virtualisation servers in a cluster can also be operated centrally controlled with UVMM.

UMC module: Online-Updates

This UMC module is used to install updates simply as online updates or from a local package repository.

UMC module for overview of system services

The "System services" UMC module provides the administrator with an overview of which services are active on the current system. These can be deactivated or restarted via the interface and the standard behaviour following system start can be specified.
