Before installing, you will need to choose a machine to be the Bcfg2 server. We recommend a Linux-based machine for this purpose, but the server will work on any supported operating system. Note that you may eventually want to run a web server on this machine for reporting and serving up package repositories. The server package only needs to be installed on your designated Bcfg2 server machine. The clients package needs to be installed on any machine you plan to manage by Bcfg2.
