This paper presents a prototype system called SFplanner which uses an automated planning technique to generate workflows for reconfiguring a computing infrastructure. The system allows an administrator to specify a configuration task which consists of current state, desired state and global constraints. This task is compiled to a grounded finite-domain representation as the input for the standard (unmodified) Fast-Downward planner in order to automatically generate a workflow. The execution of the workflow will bring the system into the desired state, preserving the global constraints at every stage of the workflow.
