You can also use rsync to restart the services instead of running a separate
process to watch the files.


/usr/local/bin/rsync -q -e ssh
root at yourserver:'`/root/scripts/`'

Are there any recommended methods for pushing changes from one MailScanner

servers and am curious what everyone else does. 

I'm planning on scp'ing the files to my other servers and using sudo to
install them in the appropriate places. 

Am I doing the best thing already, or is there some "super-cool" admin tool
that I've not read about.


I use rsync to synchronize the configuration files on my config server to
the mailscanner servers.


The servers run a small daemon that watches for changes to files in this
synched directory and will move changed files to their proper directories
and restart mailscanner.
