I've grown used to using GUI tools to perform sysadmin tasks on Linux (RHEL5). However I've been informed that many of these tools are broken and should be avoided. I have tried to run tests - comparing them with the command line and the ONLY issue I see is that if I use system-config-http then it wipes the existing configuration (and the new one is fine).
I have got used to using tools like system-config-nfs and system-config-bind. Can someone knowledgeable in Linux kindly let me know which GUI tools are safe to use in a real life environment and which ones should be avoided.
For some reason - I find working with the GUI quicker - so would welcome any constructive advice.
