This paper presents the Store system administration tool suite, which helps administering third party applications in a heterogeneous Unix environment, giving better overview, more consistency, and less manual work. The problems targeted by Store are listed; the basic functionality of Store is described, and experiences from constructing and maintaining the system are presented.
