There are really all sorts of ways to do this. We keep two conf files, a conf for the master, and a conf for the slaves. The conf for the slaves is essentially identical bar hostnames. So we use the tool called "bundle" (<http://www.eyrie.org/~eagle/software/bundle/>) to filter in the hostnames, and use krsh (kerberized rsh) to distribute updates to the conf files on all our servers. All changes to the conf files are also tracked in CVS, so we can back out if there are issues later on. Of course, we test conf file changes on our test servers before deploying them to production. ;)
