hi, Because the time I use to manage our freebsd-servers grows and grows I searched the net for something like devil-linux in bsd.
DevilLinux (http://www.devil-linux.org) is a nice project which makes it easy to manage a large amount of servers. Every server boots from a devil-linux-cd (or usb-stick, or something) and stores its config somewhere else. If you have to update your systems, burn the cds and change it. If something fails, put the original-cd in, and no problem. If someone has access to your server no binaries can be changed. The config is stored on the usb-stick. It will be loaded into a ramdisk and then the stick is unmounted. So you have the same config after reboot, no matter what you change. (You can do a write-config if you want to save it). I think it's a very nice project, but I am searching for the same in *BSD. Is there such a project around ? thanks, florian -- florian meister EMAIL: [EMAIL PROTECTED] TELEPHONE: +43 5572 501 134 FAX: +43 5572 501 97134 ADDRESS: gutenbergstrasse 1 6858 schwarzach vorarlberg austria WWW: www.medienhaus.at o If practice makes perfect, and nobody's perfect, why practice? o The solution of this problem is trival and is left as an exercise for the reader. o Recursive,adj.; see recursive. _______________________________________________________________________________ _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
