Who’s my cfengine policy hub?

This could be either a trivial question, or an arcane mistery. For me it was the second one, until I did some research and I found out that the answer was quite easy 🙂

So, how does cfengine know what's your policy hub, once you have bootstrapped a client?

The surprisingly simple answer is: by reading the contents of $(sys.workdir)/policy_server.dat, usually /var/cfengine/policy_server.dat

Good to know, when you are planning to point a client to a different hub for any reason 🙂
