    Fantastic tool!
    Small typo in Ubuntu installation:
    Wrong: sudo systemctl enable –now cockpit.sock
    Correct: sudo systemctl enable –now cockpit.socket

    Do you know if I can perform patch management with cockpit? Or at least run yum update to several Red Hat 7.2 servers?

    • Aaron Kili says:


      I can not exactly tell, if you installed it already, you can see that it offers a centralized interface to access several servers but each server with its own terminal. And the commands you run only apply to a particular server unless you write scripts to achieve patch management or single command to update several servers at once.

      It is only in the graphs where info from different servers is merged.However, you can ask the developers: of cockpit for more information on that. In case it can not be done, try to make a suggestion for possible future additions.

    Is Cockpit amd64 only? I’m getting the following error when trying to install on an Ubuntu-based distro:

    Failed to fetch 404 Not Found

  4. Chris Christensen says:

    Hi Aaron. The command for Arch is wrong (or mistyped). The command should be:

    # yaourt -S cockpit 
    # yaourt cockpit

    Thanks for the great article!
