I've used cfengine for the past 4-5 years and can definately recommend 
it, more info on

Cfengine maintains files and changes for a single system without 
problems, however it is primarily made for generic changes across a 
large number of systems, so if most of the changes are unique to each 
host, you probably want to look at something else.
