       cfrun - Execute remote cfagents

       /opt/dsau/sbin/cfrun [options]

       cfengine	 is  a language based system specifically designed for testing
       and configuring unix-like systems attached to a TCP/IP network.

       cfrun is a tool for executing one or more remote	 agents;  it  contacts
       the  cfservd daemon running on a remote host, which (in turn) starts an
       authorized agent. Cfrun cannot be used to send instructions to a remote
       agent, but it can be used to flag certain aspects to the agent's exist‐
       ing policy for special attention..

       The command line options for cfrun are slightly unusual. They are sepa‐
       rated into three sections: options to the cfrun program, options to the
       remote cfagent (with some security restrictions) and finally classes or
       flags to the remote agent.

       cfrun specialhost1 specialhost2 -- --verbose -- solaris

       In  this	 example,  we contact hosts specialhost1 specialhost2 by name,
       and ask them to execute cfagent with the --verbose flag, if  the	 class
       solaris is not defined.

       cfrun specialhost1 --verbose  --	 -- solaris

       In  this	 example  the verbose flag is sent to cfrun rather than to the
       remote agent.  No options are sent to  the  remote  agents.  The	 class
       specifier  is sent to all the agents so that they may determine whether
       they fulfill the required class membership for execution.

       The default behaviour is to  execute  cfagent  serially	on  all	 hosts
       listed in the cfrun.hosts file.

       cfrun  read  a configuration file cfrun.hosts which must contain a list
       of every potentially contactable host.
