This paper describes the automatic generation of a set of reactive agents capable of autonomously reconfiguring a computing infrastructure into a specified goal state. The agent interactions are guaranteed to be deadlock/live-lock free, can preserve pre-specified global constraints during their execution, and autonomically maintain the goal state once it has been achieved. We describe novel algorithms for the generation and execution of the agent model, and evaluate the results on some realistic problems, using a prototype implementation.
