Hi Paul:

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:

processes:

 new_cfenvd::

   "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?

Hopefully my other post answered this question; if not, could you rephrase?

Other options would be using an expect script to copy update.conf across, or using kickstart/jumpstart + a copy of update.conf.
