At Condor week I saw a very cool use of the Condor cron facility by
Micron that allowed local configuration files, but remote config file
administration. The Condor cron facility was being used to pull the
config from a shared location every so often. The nice thing about this
approach is you get the benefits of both worlds: stability if your
shared drive goes down, and the easy administration of a shared
configuration file. You just don't get immediate deployment of
configuration file changes.
