Troubleshooting the etc Directory

The cl-support script replicates the /etc directory.

Files that cl-support deliberately excludes are:

File Description
/etc/nologin nologin prevents unprivileged users from logging into the system.
/etc/alternatives update-alternatives creates, removes, maintains and displays information about the symbolic links comprising the Debian alternatives system.

This is the alphabetical of the output from running ls -l on the /etc directory structure created by cl-support. The green highlighted rows are the ones Cumulus Networks finds most important when troubleshooting problems.
