       bcfg2 - Bcfg2 client tool

       bcfg2 [options]

       bcfg2  runs  the	 Bcfg2 configuration process on the current host. This
       process consists of the following steps.

       · Fetch and execute probes

       · Upload probe results

       · Fetch the client configuration

       · Check the current client state

       · Attempt to install the desired configuration

       · Upload statistics about the Bcfg2 execution and client state

       -B     Configure everything except the given bundle(s).

       -C configfile
	      Specify alternate bcfg2.conf location.

       -D drivers
	      Specify a comma-delimited set of Bcfg2 tool drivers. NOTE:  only
	      drivers  listed  will  be	 loaded.  (e.g., if you do not include
	      POSIX, you will be unable to verify/install Path entries).

       -E encoding
	      Specify the encoding of config files.

       -I     Run bcfg2 in interactive mode. The user will be prompted	before
	      each change.

       -O     Omit lock check.

       -P     Run  bcfg2 in paranoid mode. Diffs will be logged for configura‐
	      tion files marked as paranoid by the Bcfg2 server.

       -Q     Run bcfg2 in "bundle quick" mode, where only entries in a bundle
	      are  verified  or	 installed. This runs much faster than -q, but
	      doesn't provide statistics to the server at all.	In  order  for
	      this  option  to work, the -b option must also be provided. This
	      option is incompatible with -r.

       -R retrycount
	      Specify the number of times that	the  client  will  attempt  to
	      retry network communication.

       -S server
	      Manually	specify	 the  server location (as opposed to using the
	      value  in	 bcfg2.conf).  This  should  be	 in  the   format   "‐

       -Z     Do not configure independent entries.

       -b bundles
	      Run only the specified colon-delimited set of bundles.

       -c cachefile
	      Cache a copy of the configuration in cachefile.

	      Specifiy the path to the SSL CA certificate.

       -d     Enable debugging output.

       -e     When in verbose mode, display extra entry information.

       -f path
	      Configure from a file rather than querying the server.

       -h     Print usage information.

       -k     Run in bulletproof mode. This currently only affects behavior in
	      the debian toolset; it calls apt-get update and clean  and  dpkg
	      --configure --pending.

       -l decisionmode
	      Run  the client in the specified decision list mode ("whitelist"
	      or "blacklist"), or "none", which can be used in order to	 over‐
	      ride  the	 decision  list	 mode  specified  in bcfg2.conf). This
	      approach is needed when  particular  changes  are	 deemed	 "high
	      risk".  It  gives the ability tocentrally specify these changes,
	      but only install them on clients when administrator  supervision
	      is  available. Because collaborative configuration is one of the
	      remaining hard issues in configuration management, these	issues
	      typically	 crop  up  in environments with several administrators
	      and much configuration variety. (This setting will be ignored if
	      the -f option is also specified).

       -n     Run  bcfg2  in dry-run mode. No changes will be made to the sys‐

       -o logfile
	      Writes a log to the specified path.

       -p profile
	      Assert a profile for the current client.

       -q     Run bcfg2 in quick mode. Package checksum verification won't  be
	      performed. This mode relaxes the constraints of correctness, and
	      thus should only be used in safe conditions.

       -r mode
	      Cause bcfg2 to remove extra configuration elements  it  detects.
	      Mode  is one of "all", "Services", "Packages", or "Users". "all"
	      removes all extra entries.  "Services", "Packages", and  "Users"
	      remove  only  the extra configuration elements of the respective
	      type.  ("Services" actually just disables extra services,	 since
	      they  can't  be removed, and "Users" removes extra POSIXUser and
	      POSIXUser entries.)

       -s servicemode
	      Set bcfg2 interaction level for services. Default behavior is to
	      modify  all  services  affected by reconfiguration. "build" mode
	      attempts to stop all services started. "disabled" suppresses all
	      attempts to modify services.

	      Specify the path to the SSL certificate.

	      Colon-delimited list of acceptable SSL server Common Names.

	      Specify the path to the SSL key.

       -u user
	      Attempt to authenticate as 'user'.

       -t timeout
	      Set  the	timeout (in seconds) for client communication. Default
	      is 90 seconds.

       -v     Run bcfg2 in verbose mode.

       -x password
	      Use 'password' for client communication.

       -z     Only configure independent entries, ignore bundles.
