Dude Man asked:
I was wondering if there was a unix daemon available that would be capable of something like this:
admin adds an IP entry to a DB;
daemon finds change after wait interval and manipulates ifconfig/config files
I was thinking maybe there is a plugin for cfengine that might be able to do this, but I couldn’t find any. I mean this would be a fairly easy thing to script up in perl, but why re-invent the wheel if theres already something out there that is better than what my limited programming abilities can make.
Lastly, if it worked on FreeBSD that’d be great.
Look at puppet and chef. Especially if you have a large number of systems to manage.
