In the last few weeks I worked with gosa http://www.gosa-project.org/
a project used by the Munich city council to handle their cluster
of FAI-installed workstations. It basically stores everything in a ldap
directory and uses a tidy web interface to create/remove/modify users,
mail, applications, workstations, packages, etc.

I've used it in a xen environment, so everything was pretty homogeneous,
but it has potentiality to scale well in a mixed environment.
