Puppet Configuration


Hello, I am following the Open Source Puppet Quick Start guide (https://docs.puppet.com/puppet/4.8/q...#write-modules) steps 1-5 on the side. I already had puppet installed and configured previously on my two machines, but the tutorial has it set up differently.

This tutorial uses puppetlabs and I just used puppet. I got everything to work, but I am wondering how does adding the user and group to the main puppet manifest tie into everything else that was done?

Not sure what 'everything else that was done' includes:-

Anyway Users except the 'root' user doesn't have the elevated privileges to perform certain tasks on the system.

For example if user Charles doesn't belong to the 'group' lp he won't be able to print anything on the system unless the root user, the Administrator add's him to that group.
Users can also be limited to only read and write privileges.
There are a handful of groups.

Code:
groups
root bin daemon sys adm disk wheel audio

Thank you for the response! I may have not explained everything thoroughly but your response helped me to understand more of what was occurring. On a side note, I checked out your blog and while I did not understand the purpose of a cardboard giraffe, I seriously enjoyed it. Keep up the good work! Thanks again

You're Welcome.

Glad to hear you understand things more now.

The Giraffe was strictly an experiment to see if it would work/hold together as a Pinata for kids to hit it with a baseball bat to get to the candy inside. Generally used at birthday parties.

One way you can say thanks is to Click yes to the Did you find this post helpful question.

Not necessarily true. You can print regardless if you're a member or not of 'lp' group as long as you can execute 'lp'.
