Thanks for the help Mark, the second option may work when we have all of these files created automatically, I'll use the first for all sorts of testing - much appreciated!

bit of a brain fart on the dest thing, that's cfagent ;)

thanks again,

Hi - you cannot specify groups in the admit section, but you
can use groups to define classes that can be used to predicate
an admit rule e.g.


  mygroup = ( +nisgroup )



   /file   *.domain

Alertantively you could make a list:


 list = ( a.b.c.d:A.B.C.D:m.n.x.y )


   file  $(list)

The domain variable is used in cases where fully qualified names
are not specified.


PS - there is no dest= in admit.

Hello - I'm new to the list, and a newb to Cfengine, so go easy ;)

In setting up file copies in cfservd.conf, is there any way to
incorporate groups?  The only way that I've been successful with
copying files, is to specify something like:

   <some file> dest=<some dest>

I realize that I can use wildcards for the server name, but it would
seem that the use of groups would be much easier to work with -
allowing only groups of servers to get the files specified. I might be
missing some basic concepts here.

Also, I'm curious about the "domain" setting in the control section of
the cfservd, how does cfservd use this variable?  I still need to
specify a FQDN in the admit section.  Again,  I might be missing
something here.

thanks for any advice!
