Re: Create Action Script

I'm doing the following:
Using groups section, I invoke a command and if it exits ok (with
exit 0), a class is defined.

For examples:
p01 = ( "/bin/test -f ${PRICES_DATA_HOME}/2.TMP" )u

        actionsequence= ( shellcommands copy )

to check if such file exists. But I think you can invoke another

If you have such class, you cand define another actions , in  order
to notify or may be apply a correction.

Yes.  For example, I want the /etc/init.d/postfix file on my system to
copy /etc/passwd into the chroot jail postfix's smtpd runs in.  I know
that if /etc/init.d/postfix doesn't have "etc/passwd" in it, then it
won't be doing this copy.  So I have this in my cfengine.conf:


                WarnIfNoLineContaining "etc/passwd"

Most everything in cfengine seems to have a way to just warn about the
problem instead of fixing it.

By "warn" cfengine means "print something" -- it is up to you to set
up scripts to send e-mail to the right person if cfengine prints
something.  There are example scripts in the distribution.
