Bcfg2 is a configuration management tool, similar to LCFG, CFengine or Puppet. It helps system administrators to describe and deploy complex configurations across pools of unix systems. Unlike these tools, Bcfg2 offers unique analysis features that help administrators to cope with the ever-increasing complexity of their networks. Bcfg2 has been designed with the needs of medium to large-sized administrative teams and complex configurations in mind, though it scales down well.

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

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