If that is the level of deployment you are at, I would recommend very 
sincerely too, that you atleast look at puppet and bcfg2 as alternatives 
to cfengine.

cfengine is, imho, well past its use by date. And the development 
inertia on that project leaves much to be desired. Some might argue that 
'it does what it says on the tin', but then - it doesnt really say a lot 
on the tin, does it ?
