There is no clean builtin way to do this. I use a central database. You
could run cfservd on all the clients and have the server periodically
use the cfengine network copy protocol to fetch files from the client
to the server, but I think such a configuration makes a setup harder to
reason about. I like to think of a unidirectional data flow, from the
server to the client, for native cfengine operations.
