We recently lost our system admin. and I have picked up the task of ensuring that if anything bad happens we can recreate our VM's.
The systems are FreeBSD various versions.
Is there any way i can use something like salt stack, puppet, etc.. to reverse engineer a server manifest from an existing installation ??
I fear I do not have sufficient knowledge to be sure that I know what services are running on each server to create one from scratch and was wondering if there is a tool that can scan a system and create a manifest based on what it finds in the installed packages and their config files.
wishful thinking i'm sure but if anyone knows how this might be done i'd appreciate it.
