This script shows a technique for creating a repository of settings like syslog servers, NTP servers, etc as a list. This way, when something needs to change (say, a syslog server IP changes), instead of having to check every script to see if it uses the changed value, you can update the list. By referencing this list in your other scripts and policies, you can roll out changes without having to track down these references in every script. By doing this, when a system like syslog server changes, you can change the IP address in the list which will trigger a policy violation which then triggers the remediation job.
