We propose a new approach to managing a rapidly evolving grid fabric. The paper begins with a discussion of current configuration systems and their applicability to grid fabrics, followed by a brief analysis of the approaches to fabric configuration of two major grids: TeraGrid and the European DataGrid. We then present our architecture for grid configuration management, and discuss our reference implementation.
