What type of admin are trying to do on your cluster.  First, to get the
most power out of your cluster, shouldn't you be running nodes in run level
3 (non gui).

You can set up ssh keys so you can create some scripts and perform your
commands  (from your admin machine) on each of your cluster nodes.  (i.e.,
running a command over ssh without a password being needed).

You may also be interested in esysman that allows for doing many admin
tasks from a web interface on your admin box:


Just this last week I updated it to work with CentOS (orLSB/RPM based
systems).  It currently supports MS Windows, OS X, Xubuntu (and probably
other LSB/ubuntu/debian base systems) and now CentOS.
