Subject: An Introduction to Configuration Management Using Bcfg2
Presenter: Ian Dotson

Bcfg2 was developed at Argonne National Laboratory to provide system
administrators with a tool to describe their systems and make
consistent, verifiable changes. I’ll be giving a brief introduction to
Bcfg2 and how it can be used to to model and automate system
configuration in your environment.

Ian Dotson has been a Unix system administrator for nine years. He is
currently working for the University of Washington Libraries where
he’s been using Bcfg2 to manage a growing number of Linux systems.
Prior to working at UW, he was a system administrator at RealNetworks.
