Hello,

what are you doing in your cfengine programm? Is this a "editfiles:"
or "files:" action? If you want to create files - try like this:

files:
        /some/file
                  mode=755
                  owner=root    # change owner an group in what you
want
                  group=root
                  action=fixall

sorry I haven't tested this, but it should work. I'm not a
"cfengine-Expert". You have to define "files" in the actionsequence
also. You will find more details in the cfengine-reference.

regards
Uli
