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 to scale from small to large-sized administrative teams with a focus on solving complex configuration problems.

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

Bcfg2 helps system administrators produce a consistent, reproducable, and verifible description of their environment, and offers visualization and reporting tools to aid in day-to-day administrative tasks.
