comment Automated hardware testing of HP servers?
The problem is if (a) fault is detected post OS install (i.e. server is in production), (b) repair cannot be done online or the failed component is a SPOF for the server, and (c) server is a SPOF, then you will experience downtime (either immediately or when system is taken down to repair). To prevent the conclusion you need to prevent one of the conditions. I was going for (a) by detecting the fault before production. I appreciate your thoroughness in detailing the reporting abilities but I'm looking to prevent the need to report them in the first place because they don't happen.

The HP management agents are installed on both ESXi and Ubuntu. The servers are Gen8 and will be Gen9.

comment Chef - Automatically add nodes to chef server
Add chef-client to the post-processing section of your provisioning system. For example, on AWS you could add it to the "run-once" section of the cloud-init configuration. For RHEL you could add it to the %post section of the kickstart file.

So without the "-d" no logs are generated at all? If there are some can you post them?

From the first paste it looks like it starts OK. You then hit control-C so it shuts down: "346 ^Cdaemon: shutdown requested and initiated."

comment Use puppet to change the IP address on the nodes
Both will work but the better way is to use a template and a parametrized class. See docs.puppetlabs.com/learning/modules2.html
