This Master thesis is the final project at Oslo University College which is a part of the international Master degree in Network and system administration, in collaboration with the University of Oslo. This thesis includes a literature review covering the important topics and methodologies. The starting point of this thesis is a user survey of practices using cfengine, performed within cfengine users. A questionnaire was developed and published to receive participants’ feedback. This made it possible to present and analyse the received data in an analytical manner. The result of the analysis may help develop a new version of cfengine.
