I need to provide some configuration customization to several servers in our small department network. We are using RHEL5 currently and since I don't want to repeat work, I'd like to create RPMs with that configuration and upload them to our RHN.
Now the problem: assuming I want to distribute NTP configuration via
/etc/ntp.conf. Sadly, there is no
/etc/ntp.d/ to put my files into, thus I'd have to overwrite the
ntp.conf with my RPM. How do I do that properly, i.e. without losing that configuration when
ntp is updated and also without possible configuration files conflicts?
