Porting cfengine to Windows NT

Bjørn Gustafson - Jørgen Kjensli


As computer systems are becoming more complex the need to automate the tedious tasks of the system administrator increases. Cfengine is a program that does this on UNIX systems. Although Windows NT is supposed to be easy to use with its graphical user interface, it often makes administering and configuring the system very time consuming. A tool like cfengine can therefore be very useful on NT as well. This report describes the work we have done to port cfengine to Windows NT and some thoughts about future work.
