BEgrid (Belgian GRID) is using Quattor in a non standard way. A central server handle configurations for all the sites. Each site is running a "Quattor client" retrieving and compiling the configurations. There is no push to site. The central machine is becoming old and the hardware start failing. A fresh installation is required and it's the opportunity to refresh everything a use Quattor in the standard way. The task is not so easy and we have a lack of experience (at least at BELNET). So, we would like to present the situation and where we want to go. We expect inputs from the Quattor community to help us having a clean situation.
