My organization wants to centrally manage an Oracle TNSnames file for all of their production servers. When that file changes, they want to be able to push out the changes to all servers that use it with a minimal effort.
Approaches that have been considered:
- Centralized file server (drawback: if the file server or the network connection to the file server goes down, the servers have no access to the critical file)
- Subversion client on each server (drawback: using a source control tool in production, added complexity)
- Store an individual copy of the file on each server (drawback: changing the file contents involves making changes on many different servers)
Update Can I use DFS to do this?
