Thanks, initial deployment is what I'm envisioning as well. I'd prefer
to reduce the manual deployment steps as much as possible. In the
pattern that you describe, it sounds like it would be a good idea to
set "replace => false" on the BosConfig File resource to avoid any
accidental changes to current production servers?
