Title:Configuration tools: working together
Authors: Paul Anderson ; Edmund Smith
Date:Dec 2005
Publication Title:Procs of the 2005 Large Installations Systems Administration (LISA) Conference
Publication Type:Conference Paper

Developments in modern configuration tools have been hampered by a lack of standards. Users with sufficient resources have developed tools for their own use, but these virtually never inter-operate, and rarely attract the necessary effort and confidence for them to be widely used outside of their development organisations. This paper proposes a simple level of interoperation which should allow independent development of ``higher-level'' configuration manipulation tools. Such tools would be able to make use of new and existing tools for the expensive (in terms of development) deployment operations.
