paranoid mode should be truly paranoid

Reported by: [email protected] Owned by: desai
Priority: major Milestone: Bcfg2 0.9.0 Release
Component: bcfg2-client Version:
Keywords: Cc:


Currently, in paranoid mode, bcfg2 will overwrite all config files without creating a backup if the directory /var/spool/bcfg2 doesn't exist. It probably shouldn't. If the admin went out of the way to specify "paranoid: true" and "bcfg2 -P", then they really want to have a record of any changes in config files.

Quietly failing is not a very good behaviour.

ConfigFile? installation now halts if a backup cannot be created and -P is specified. This is committed in [36aa72ac90b0a9635fa7b349698d72635809fc00] (SVN r2683)
