Re: Error when executing cfagent

Sorry, here is the full scenerio we are trying to test

Setup  :
We got 300 machines divided into various groups. i.e Developer group, Engineering group, IS group, etc . Each group gets different configuration files through defined cron jobs. Presently the distribution of binaries, rpms, etc is done using multi-tier architecture means the main server distributes the files to the underlying 10 machines and then these 10 machines distibutes the files to remaining 289 machines.

Objective :
We need to replace the above architecture using CFengine but at the same time we also make sure that network is not fully occupied. We want to have control on the number of machines getting the updates/files. Also, machines cannot be differentiated on IP basis. There are machines falling under different groups in the same IP range.

Note :  The group under which a machine lies is read by the utility from a flat file.

Requirement :
How our configuration files should look like and how can we execute different tasks on different set of machines.

Package version in use : BerkeleyDB 3.3.11, OpenSSL 0.9.6e and CFengine2.1.3

Machine SERVER_1 : Complete installation of all the packages mentioned above
Services running : cfexecd and cfservd
/data folder exported for CLIENT machine
/data/cfrun.hosts has CLIENT_2 to CLIENT_289 names listed

Machine CLIENT_2 - CLIENT_289 : Complete installation of all the packages mentioned above
Services running : cfexecd
Mounted /data folder from SERVER_1
/opt/cfengine/ppkeys/ has public key available

Please feel free if any other information is required. Looking forward to your reply.

Thanks in advance.....

We certainly will need to have more information that this.

What system are you running on?
What version of cfengine are you running?

Exactly, what steps did you take to set it up?

What exactly does the error say?

without this kind of information (and much more) you will not
be able to get any kind of help.
