    Good luck with the RAID.

    Webmin not loading right

    I don’t know nginx well enough to comment but when using reverse proxies i know that every different app, website, tool, etc, needs a little tweaking with the proxy rules or the URL rewrite rules (I’ve mostly done reverse proxying with Apache and some F5 load balances). Its to a bit of a mind field but that’s where I would look.

    Using Git to improve workflow

    Bitbucket includes 5 free private Repositories that can be shared with specific members. I think for free, private repos with SOME control over who has access to what it would be best place to start. https://bitbucket.org/product/pricing?tab=host-in-the-cloud

    Can you ssh to the box and ssh port forward to the web server port that has webmin (bypassing nginx) and test? i have a super vague memory of webmin being read only until you modified a file allowing something but I could be wrong.
  5. Connection refused means something is saying NO to you’re connection. Firewall, access control list in Open Manage, etc. A few ways to test this off the top of my head. 1. Telnet to the port from your computer to the server. It’s https so it will all be jibberish, but we are just looking to see if the port opens. 2. Create an SSH session and port forward localhost:1311 (or some other unused port on your local machine) to Then go into your browser with https://localhost:1311 (or what ever local port you used) 3. Use a text browser on the server. Using lynx or links try accessing https://loalhost:1311 via the ssh console. Won’t really be usable but will give you an idea. 4. Lots and lots of log trolling. 5. See if open manage has a debug mode, 6. (Really bad option). Install x and GUI and go to run level 5 and use a browser. This would be my super super last resort and it makes me cringe just typing it.
  6. If all the computers are on an Active Directory Domain you can use Group Policy to push the software. I'm not going to say its 'simple' but it would do it. Its not super complex but its a bit of tinkering. there are 3-4 days to do it inside group policy alone. If these are Windows 10 Machines you can look at provisioning packages to run your batch file. These are made by the Windows Configuration Designer. It has the password but its encoded. You can also apply a password to the provisioning packages if you want and give it to end users. This means they have the password to the provisioning package but not the actual password to run as admin (Note: super smart people may be able to reverse engineer to get the encoded password). These are very new and some features are depending on the various build versions of Windows 10 (Aka Creators Update, Fall Creators Update, etc). The cool thing about these is that they are designed for end users to use. It can pick them up as soon as you plug in thumb drive with the provisioning package or even be opened via email. Otherwise there are management packages that can remotely install software. Take a look at Spiceworks. NB: Spiceworks is free so i'm sure their are conditions/catches but I think its not too bad (anonymised telemetry data en-mass). I haven't used this in full and only tried it out for about half a day but I think its one of their tools features. See https://community.spiceworks.com/tools?source=navbar-drawer for more. Lastly, You can look at one of the amazing SysInternals tools. Specifically, psexec. If the username and password is the same on all machines then psexec can remotely execute the batch file from a shared location as admin to complete the setup. Another cool thing would be to create a customised chocolatey package and then a powershell script that remotely connects to all the computers and runs the chocolatey install command and then install your customised chocolatey package. NB: you may need to make an internal chocolatey (file share) and add it as trusted. This will take a bit of work but will teach you HEAPS about both Powershell, chocolatey and remote management.
