LCFG is a system for automatically installing and managing the configuration of large numbers of Unix systems. It is particularly suitable for sites with very diverse and rapidly changing configurations.
A good overview is available in this paper. Further details are available in the FAQ and the documentation. There is also an archived mailing list for discussions and announcements. All LCFG software is freely available under the GPL. See the download section.
A number of LCFG Users Days and other meetings have been held. See the see the LCFG wiki for further details.
A book on LCFG, written by Paul Anderson, titled "LCFG: A Practical Tool for System Configuration" has been released. This is part of the SAGE Short Topics in System Administration series. There is a web page where you can purchase a copy of the print version. If you are SAGE member you can also download a free PDF copy. We also have an additional information and errata page.
