@Zoredache - thanks, I had stumbled upon something else alluding to this a little earlier, I will post the links if it works out. You are right though, custom facts appear to be the way to go.

we are retro fitting puppet to our machines hence we will need to touch all machines anyway, install the puppet client package and modify the /etc/puppet/puppet.conf I guess I was wondering whether there was a setting I could put in there that would specify the roles at the client side.

comment OpenVPN performance: how many concurrent clients are possible?
To clarify - they have not, but I have not been tracking it either.... :-/ The "300" number just seemed reasonable. If we have problems we would just bump up the AWS image to a larger instance. I've never had close to that many connections on a server before, probably only about 100 max, but we run several servers and they approximately balance in line with openvpn randomly choosing a destination from a known list.
