Hello together,
within the next 24 hours cfengine-2.1.8 with some bugs fixed is
released. When upgrading from an older versions cfengine deadlocks on
operation. You can verify this using the following command.

/opt/csw/sbin/cfagent -q -v -c -K (no splaytime; verbose; no copy action; no locking)

This are some known mutex problems which appear only on platforms which
*haven't* *full and current* POSIX threads support (solaris doesn't).

To circumvent the problem delete the root-* in ppkeys. See cfengine-bug
archive for more informations or contact me direct.
