I'm just starting with cfengine myself, and although it looks to be very
powerful the documentation isn't easy to follow.

I /think/ what you will want to do is install cfengine on each system and
copy your update.conf and cfagent.conf files into your include directory
(/var/cfengine/include/). Then run `cfagent` once and it should pull down the
rest of the configuration, if you have your update.conf set up correctly and
cfservd running on the master.

I am not at this stage myself yet, so I can't be sure... 

Perfection is just a word I use occasionally with mustard.

Subject: newbie question ...

currently just installed cfengine version 2.1.11. 
Have the basic update.conf and cfagent.conf in /var/cfengine/input dir.  My
next question is how do I test it out?  Will I need to a manuall install of
cfengine on other server as well?  Or will I just have to copy some part of
it over and run some cf command to sync up the changes? Thanks.
