Scope of classes in CFE 3.10.2 on CentOS 7

Hi folks,

I have a question concerning scope of classes in CFEngine 3. I run CFE
3.10.2 on CentOS 7.4.

# cf-agent -V
CFEngine Core 3.10.2

# cat /etc/redhat-release
CentOS Linux release 7.4.1708 (Core)

I'm logged in as root and located in current working dir /root. I have
the following file

# ll ./samples/
-rwx------. 1 root root 720 10.

Creating KVM-based VM with virt-manager and virt-install on C7

Hi folks,

for learning purposes I create KVM-based VM with the virt-manager. Later
I get rid of the VM and repeat the "process" again. When recreating the
VM I always enter the same values into the wizard in virt-manager (i.e.
I want to speicfy a given MAC).

I'd like to "automate" this procedure, all of what I do in virt-manager
for creating the new VM, I' d like to do it with a bash script using

I' wndering if it is possible to "record" the values when I enter them
into virt-manager and extract those values for usage with virt-install?

Problem with definition of slist in CFEngine

Hey folks,

I have a problem with the definition of a variable of type slist in
CFEngine on

# uname -a ; cat /etc/redhat-release
Linux 3.10.0-693.el7.x86_64 #1 SMP Tue Aug 22
21:09:27 UTC 2017 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
CentOS Linux release 7.4.1708 (Core)

I'm not sure if its valid to ask CFEngine questions on this mailing
list, but as far as I'm running on CentOS I hope that it is okay.

I'm logged in as user

# id
uid=0(root) gid=0(root) Gruppen=0(root)

and working on directory

# pwd

Network configuration issue with second public ip on CentOS 6

Hi folks,

I have a server at (which is a brand of OVH). I run
CentOS 6.7 and have problems with network configuration.

I want to add a second public ip (failover ip) to the server and did
follow the instructions in the CentOS-section of
<a href="" title=""></a>

After executing the required steps I'm not able to reach the host via
the second ip from an external host.

documents. As scanning application I use xsane.

Problems with Samba-based Home-Directory

Hi folks,

I'm running CentOS 6.6 on my workstation. There I have a user meikel,
and its home directory /home/meikel ist stored on a samba share on a
server which also runs CentOS 6.6.

In the very beginning I added the mount options for that home directory
into the /etc/fstab file which led to some problems, so I set up autofs
for mounting the home directory.

The autofs seems to work for /home/meikel, but sometimes when I login at
the GUI, I get error messages which look a little as if the home dir
isn't available, I then also don't get my desktop background image.
