Configuration management tool

Hello all.

I wanted to use Puppy to maintain configuration for some Windows
servers,
but apparently the port is not mature yet for Win32.

So, I’m thinking of implementing it myself. My needs are simple:

  • copy files over
  • restart IIS/services
  • edit XML files (add/remove keys)
  • register assemblies in the GAC

So, it’s kinda like Windows’ System Restore functionality, in spirit.

My question is: does someone know of something that can do this for
Windows? And if not, is there a way to register assemblies in the GAC
with
IronRuby, or do I have to encapsulate gacutil in a system call? (same
for
services, too).

Thanks for any feedback in advance!

Not off the top of my head, but that doesn’t mean that it doesn’t
exist.

And if not, is there a way to register assemblies in the GAC with
IronRuby,

This thread on Stackoverflow shows how to do it programmatically using
the IComSoapPublisher.GacInstall method: http://bit.ly/dcF6lf. You
should be able to call that from IronRuby.
