Bcfg2 is a system configuration tool that also provides reports about:

  • current deployment status
  • client configuration state
  • anomalous client configurations

The major distinction between Bcfg2 and other configuration management tools is the convenient exposure of configuration information to system administrators.

Bcfg2 is fairly portable; support for new architectures generally consists of ~100 lines of python code. The following architectures are supported:

  • Debian (and Ubuntu)
  • RPM-based Linux distributions (Redhat, SuSE, SLES, RHEL, and Mandrake)
  • Solaris
