That sounds more like your DHCP lease getting renewed than cfengine.

I am getting desperate on this one.  Cfengine is stepping on my
resolv.conf files on my Linux boxes (but not my Suns!) despite the
resolve: section being commented out *and* "resolve" being completely
removed from the actionsequence.

This happens sporadically and randomly; I cannot get it to occur when
running cfagent by hand, but it happens every night somewhere between
10pm and 6am (often not at the same time).

Even more strangely, no resolv.conf appears in my repository. It's as if
the file is vanishing and cfengine is creating a new one.  I've had
scripts monitor the file, however, and this is not the case; the
resolv.conf is happy and fine until cfengine stomps on it and replaces
it with a very bare-bones file (no search path except the host's domain,
one DNS).

Any ideas?  My users are rioting here.

(I originally sent this to bug-, but am trying again with the help- list

Perfection is just a word I use occasionally with mustard.
