Bcfg2 is a tool that aids in the administration of complex environments. Using its server-side configuration specifiction, Bcfg2:

  • Deploys configuration changes
  • Reports on deployment status
  • Detects configuration deviations

Bcfg2 can be used to describe:

  • Single configuration entities (Configuration files, packages, services, etc)
  • Full service configurations
  • Complex multi-machine configurations with subtle interdependencies

All of this information is synthesized into a form that aids in the communication of system architecture and administrative policies.

Bcfg2 is fairly portable. It has been successfully run on:

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