Hi Paul:

Yes, you need to copy the update.conf over by hand the first time.
Then run:

cfagent -f /path/to/update.conf.

That will just do what's in your update.conf.

Then I usually run:

cfagent -q

right after, to actually do everything you want it to.  I hope this helps.

Try this the first time you run it...
cfagent -f /etc/cfengine/update.conf
Just a clarifying note that /etc/cfengine/update.conf should be replaced with the location of his update.conf. My automatic setup puts update.conf into /var/cfengine/inputs on each new machine, so I never have to specify the -f option. Sure it gets overwritten on the first run, but that doesn't bother me :).

Right. This was my attitude as well. Although I'm a bit confused how cfengine would get update.conf to a machine where nothing is running yet. If a machine is brand new to the network, is my only option to copy update.conf from the source policy master to the client manually? At that point, I'm guessing if I have a entry in update.conf where cfagent is specified to start like so:



   "cfenvd" signal=kill restart "/var/cfengine/bin/cfenvd -H"

cfagent should grab the cfagent.conf file from the policy master?
Or, do I need to go read up some more?

Thanks a ton,
