If you understand 'automated deployment' to mean just merely clobbering 
an installation with another Linux distro then I cannot help you. You 
can keep your barbed comment to yourself.

When one builds the tools and the infrastructure necessary for automated 
deployment, one does not leave out staging the deployment to a staging 
box/farm and testing for expected behaviour and nor does one not have a 
monitoring system to keep a tab on things.
