Assessing YAIM

Random remarks

  • Not atomic: lots errors or warnings may be produced when running configure_node, but still the end result may be: "Configuration complete".
  • Not structured: when configuring multiple node types or services, it is not obvious from observing the output which part is being configured.
  • Reconfiguring: when things have to be changed after a system has been configured, one would want to be able to rerun Yaim with a new site-info.def, and be sure that everything will be updated accordingly. This is not the case.
  • Unconfiguring/removing a service: how to uninstall a service? rpm -e looks like an answer, but how to take care of all the dependencies?
