Abstract: You've been using tools like Puppet and cfengine to corral the complexity on your servers. You revel in the scalability, reliability, and ease of maintenance of doing it The Right Way. You don't fear the next change because you know the tools will just get it Right. But you still tremble at an 'enable' prompt, hoping you remembered all the bits that need to be twiddled, on all the networking devices everywhere. Is your DNS tied on straight - both ways? Is it all *really* being monitored by Nagios? As your network's complexity increases, so do the errors, inconsistencies, and omissions caused by manual configuration, and brokenness abounds. But wait - there's a way out of the swamp! Come hear Brent Chapman as he reveals methods and tools for automating the mind-numbing task of configuring network devices and services. Among other things, he'll talk about his cool new open source 'Netomata Config Generator', which addresses some of these problems.
