Re: Strategy for "one-off" tasks

For simple stuff I have a cf.onetimers file listed in my cfagent.conf that
looks as follows.


I edit that file adding the commands I need to issue, then run it from the
cfagent master server like this

cfrun -- -D onetimers

I know this doesn't handle machines that are off line at the time of
execution but it's simple and in my environment it works well enough for
me most the time.
