Hi I'm testing out cfengine deploys in rhel 5.6. Everything works great but I am wondering if there is a way for the community edition of cfengine to report to a file all the files it has deployed to a system. I deploy all files from a policy host via secure cp. I'm using cfengine3 community edition.
I realise this is old, but there was no answer ...
This may be possible in the Nova edition. If you want to cobble something together with the community edition I think what you would need to do is define a class if repaired, or always whatever depending what kind of report your looking to get for that file, then have a report to file based on that class existence.
If you want it collected back to a central point, thats also something you would have to orchestrate. You mgiht want to just post that file to a webdav server so you dont have to have each host defined in the central servers policy to do a copy from.
Anyway, I know the answer is long overdue, but I hope it helps.
