Here are configuration files we keep in git in addition to scripts for lustre install and mdt/ost formatting.
/etc/ldev.conf -- this file is common for all servers
/etc/sysconfig/lustre -- common for all servers; changed zfs mountpoint
/etc/modprobe.d/lustre.conf -- and/or other modprobe.d files with lustre/lnet/lnd drivers configuration; likely common
/etc/zfs/vdev_id.conf -- zfs
/etc/zfs/zfswatcher.conf -- zfs monitoring; "from ="

Just for extra reinsurance from the real world: NSC reinstalls the
same system image on all MDSs and OSSs every time we reboot our
servers. So there is no special magic in the OS that needs to be
preserved with the exception of the /etc/ldev.conf file. In our case
we have fixed that difference between servers by having an init script
that knows how to recreate it.
