These answers seems a bit outdated, with new versions of puppet i.e 3.7.x, class parameters can be passed using Hiera. Resource like class declaration is not considered best practice anymore. Although the second answer does use Hiera, but it is using ‘hiera’ function explicitly, which is again a not so advisable practice. The new solution would look ...
What you are describing here is a classic example of a very simple relational database. Go, design your own. You can go for LAMP, or let's say MS Access.
You can deploy any component of the Office 2013 suite as Click-to-Run via specifying the Product IDs here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2842297/. Meeting the license requirement is another story. You can still do key-based activation/licensing by specifying AUTOACTIVATE = 0 in the Property element of your XML file. Further configuration.xml ...
I highly doubt many people use their CM agent as their primary system to manage services. Mostly configuration management is used to configure the your OS init system, and it uses the init system features to start/stop things.
For Fedora/RHEL/CentOS - the default method to configure sysfs and have it persist across reboots is to use tuned. tuned is a general system tuning infrastucture. For sysfs parameters, create a [sysfs] stanza in your configuration file, and provide a line per variable that you want to set and have persist across reboots. Also as Lennart Poettering pointed ...
Sharing exported resources is problematic, because it requires mutual trust between the collecting master and the storing PuppetDB. For this you will need to share the Puppet CA, and this will blur the separation of the infrastructure. You might have better luck actually introducing additional agents on the monitoring infrastructure as well. These will ...
Here is what I put together from various web pages. Using Powershell. Please note that you will have better success using WinRM (winrm quickconfig on the remote servers to enable WinRM) which can use the Invoke-Command cmdlet instead of the Invoke-WmiMethod but this method works for me on Server 2008 and newer. For Server 2003, the Updates deployment ...
Ok, It was because of the difference of version between master and minion. After having updated the two systems, everything has worked.
The designated tool that meets the described requirements is Beaker. It will allow the creation of acceptance test scenarios like the one that was sketched in the question.
I managed to figure out the query. It's a little rough but here it is for anyone else trying to do the same thing: SELECT d.CollectionID, d.CollectionName, m.Name, m.ResourceID, a.AssignmentName, a.AssignmentID, s.TopicType, s.StateID, n.StateDescription, s.StateTime FROM v_DeploymentSummary d inner join vCI_CIAssignments a on d.AssignmentID = ...
Im actually in the process of updating servers for the first time using SCCM. Assuming that SCCM 2012 behaves like SCCM 2007, the absence of a maintenance window means that the machines in that collection will install updates whenever they feel like it (at or after the deadline), as you have found. I too have found this to be the case. You have to ...
