      Hi!

      I want to log and to enumerate some MacOS X systems on a daily base.

      • what software is installed
      • which kernel extensions
      • how many users
      • and more

      For Windows or Linux there’re a lot of scripts out there. Does anyone at least know the commands for MacOS user enumeration (Terminal based)? Which Apple-userland applications that create textual output to log all this can you use?

      Thanks,
      wishi

      it should be very similar to any linux scripts since OS X is bsd based.

      Should be, but isn’t. Listing users/groups is entirely different. I think you have to use dscl, but the documentation is very poor. Installed software gets into some kind of database… differs a lot.
