NAME

       cdist-remote-exec-copy - How to use remote exec and copy

INTRO

       Cdist interacts with the target host in two ways: - it executes code (remote_exec) - and
       it copies files (remote_copy)

       By default this is accomplished with ssh and scp respectively. The default implementations
       used by cdist are: remote_exec: ssh -o User=root -q remote_copy: scp -o User=root -q

       The user can override these defaults by providing custom implementations and passing them
       to cdist with the --remote-exec and/or --remote-copy arguments.

       For remote_exec, the custom implementation must behave as if it where ssh. For
       remote_copy, it must behave like scp.

       With this simple interface the user can take total control of how cdist interacts with the
       target when required, while the default implementation remains as simple as possible.

EXAMPLES

       See cdist/other/examples/remote/ for some example implementations.
