CFengine 3 Tutorial — Part 2 — Building Software and SMF Manifests / Scripts

CFEngine and dependencies
Building OpenSSL

$ echo $PATH
/var/tmp/openssl-1.0.0 $ ./Configure solaris-x86-gcc shared –prefix=/usr/local/ssl –openssldir=/usr/local/ssl
/var/tmp/openssl-1.0.0 $ gmake
/var/tmp/openssl-1.0.0 $ gmake install

Building PCRE

/var/tmp/pcre-8.02 $ echo $LDFLAGS
-L/usr/sfw/lib -L/usr/sfw/lib
/var/tmp/pcre-8.02 $ ./configure –disable-cpp CFLAGS=”-g -O3″ CC=gcc –enable-utf8 –enable-unicode-properties
/var/tmp/pcre-8.02 $ gmake
/var/tmp/pcre-8.02 $ sudo gmake install

Building CFEngine

Note: I modify the Makefile to statically compile in the BerkeleyDB, OpenSSL, and libpcre libraries into the CFEngine binaries. I also modify the reference for pthread to pthreads for Solaris. These adjustments to the Makefile are dependant on how you built the software above. Caveat emptor

/var/tmp/cfengine-3.0.4 $ export LD_LIBRARY_FLAGS=/usr/sfw/lib:/usr/local/lib:/usr/lib
/var/tmp/cfengine-3.0.4 $ export CC=/usr/sfw/bin/gcc
/var/tmp/cfengine-3.0.4 $ ./configure –prefix=/var/cfengine –with-openssl=/usr/local/ssl –without-sql –with-berkeleydb=/usr/local/BerkeleyDB/4.4 –enable-static
/var/tmp/cfengine-3.0.4 $ cd src
/var/tmp/cfengine-3.0.4/src $ perl -p -i.sav -e “s:-ldb:/usr/local/BerkeleyDB/4.4/lib/libdb.a:” Makefile
/var/tmp/cfengine-3.0.4/src $ perl -p -i.sav -e “s:-lcrypto:/usr/local/ssl/lib/libcrypto.a:” Makefile
/var/tmp/cfengine-3.0.4/src $ perl -p -i.sav -e “s:-lpcre:/usr/local/lib/libpcre.a:” Makefile
/var/tmp/cfengine-3.0.4/src $ perl -p -i.sav -e “s:-pthread:-pthreads:” Makefile
/var/tmp/cfengine-3.0.4/src $ cd ..
/var/tmp/cfengine-3.0.4 $ gmake
/var/tmp/cfengine-3.0.4 $ gmake install

Subversion and dependencies.
Building apr

/var/tmp $ bunzip2 apr-1.4.2.tar.bz2
/var/tmp $ tar -xf apr-1.4.2.tar
/var/tmp $ cd apr-1.4.2
/var/tmp/apr-1.4.2 $ ./configure –prefix=/usr/local/apr
/var/tmp/apr-1.4.2 $ gmake
/var/tmp/apr-1.4.2 $ sudo gmake install

Building apr-util

/var/tmp $ bunzip2 apr-util-1.3.9.tar.bz2
/var/tmp $ tar -xf apr-util-1.3.9.tar
/var/tmp $ cd apr-util-1.3.9
/var/tmp/apr-util-1.3.9 $ ./configure –with-apr=/usr/local/apr
/var/tmp/apr-util-1.3.9 $ gmake
/var/tmp/apr-util-1.3.9 $ sudo gmake install

Building sqlite

/var/tmp $ tar -xf sqlite-amalgamation-
/var/tmp/sqlite- $ ./configure
/var/tmp/sqlite- $ gmake
/var/tmp/sqlite- $ gmake install

Building Subversion

/var/tmp $ tar -xf subversion-1.6.12.tar
/var/tmp/subversion-1.6.12 $ echo $LD_LIBRARY_PATH
/var/tmp/subversion-1.6.12 $ ./configure –with-apr-util=/usr/local/apr –with-apr=/usr/local/apr –without-berkeley-db –with-sqlite=/usr/local
/var/tmp/subversion-1.6.12 $ gmake
/var/tmp/subversion-1.6.12 $ gmake install

SMF Manifests / Scripts

I’ve created SMF manifests for cf-execd, cf-monitord, and cf-serverd. Clients should run cf-monitord and cf-execd. Master Policy Servers should run all three daemons. The SMF manifests / scripts for all 3 daemons are exactly the same, substitute the names of the daemons / descriptions. This is Solaris 10 specific.

$ svcs -a | grep cfengine
online Jun_30 svc:/application/cfengine/cf-serverd:default
online Jun_30 svc:/application/cfengine/cf-monitord:default
online Jun_30 svc:/application/cfengine/cf-execd:default

$ svccfg export cf-serverd
<?xml version='1.0'?>
<!DOCTYPE service_bundle SYSTEM '/usr/share/lib/xml/dtd/service_bundle.dtd.1'>
<service_bundle type='manifest' name='export'>
<service name='application/cfengine/cf-serverd' type='service' version='0'>
<create_default_instance enabled='true'/>
<exec_method name='start' type='method' exec='/var/cfengine/etc/ %m' timeout_seconds='60'>

<propval name='duration' type='astring' value='contract'/>
<loctext xml:lang='C'>Cfengine server process</loctext>
<doc_link name='Further information' uri=''/>

$ cat /var/cfengine/etc/


case “$1” in
echo “Starting cf-serverd”

echo “Stopping cf-serverd”
kill -15 `cat /var/cfengine/`

$0 stop
sleep 1
$0 start

echo “Usage: $N {start|stop|restart|force-reload}” >&2
exit 1
exit 0
