Re: [K12OSN] Re: OT - Upgrading Server - Copying Config Files



If you want to go one step further, keep all config files in a tool like
subversion or CVS. Now changes are store and be rolled back if wrong.
Publish to their correct locations as required.

Also look at a tool called puppet. It is useful for maintaining configs
across many machines.

Lastly, keep your eye on a project called Spacewalk. It is the
opensource/GPL version of RedHat Satellite Server.
