CFEngine is a highly flexible configuration management framework. It also has a very high learning curve which can sometimes make decisions about how to deploy and use it difficult. At AGLT2 we manage a variety of different systems with CFEngine. We also have an effective version-controlled workflow for developing, testing, and deploying changes to our configuration. The talk will demonstrate what a practical and useful CFEngine infrastructure might look like. It will also include examples of how we organize our policy and effectively use the CFEngine policy language.
