Looking for explanation on amount of .cfg files EPM


(Rabba Zabba) #1

Hello! I am trying to figure out why there are so many different .cfg files in /tftpboot directory created by the endpoint manager module.
I have learned that they save the global endpoint manager settings. And when I make a change the time stamp is changed on all of them

Can someone explain me the idea behind this? Thank you!

Poor planning. Most likely no one even looked at this part of things. Since it is a commercial module we have no insight into what they did.

But it is annoying. Since EPM knows exactly which models you are using, it should be trivial to only make the generic config files for those models.

On that subject, have you looked in them? They may as well not exist. Then there is the mac.cfg files being bloated like the blueberry girl in Willy Wonka.

Thank you Greg and Jared for the insight! Questions answered :slight_smile: No, I haven’t looked into the files. I am creating an S3 backup script (self hosted) as the backup & restore module performs poorly. So I am evaluating the backup content.
