Description

Every time Rudder edits a file it adds a header, but due to a cfengine bug (https://cfengine.com/dev/issues/1525) at each run it adds a new one ...

A simple workaround: modify the header parameter in the webapp (config management -> Parameters page) and put a simple one liner header : "### Managed by Rudder, edit with care

The title says it all. /etc/ntp.conf looks like this now:

I confirm. This is fairly new, either linked to #4487 or to #4553
I'm checking which one is the culprit

What I did to get back to initial state is:

  • Disabled ntp directives
  • Create enforce file content directives to provide a clean file
  • Created a post-hook to the enforce file content directives to clean ${RUDDER_BASE}/modified-files/*, ${RUDDER_BASE}/cfengine-community/outputs/* and ${RUDDER_BASE}/cfengine-community/state/* - It was never that big before.

We should at least fix the header on new install and migration by replacing it with a one liner "### Managed by Rudder, edit with care ###". so it does not break on update.

Maybe adding some warnings would be a good idea. and add an entry in the FAQ

I updated the description to reduce the amount of header to make the issue more readable
