About Puppet


Hi all,

Puppet/Puppetlabs is completely new to me. I'm only aware it is an admin system for Unix/Linux. PhpMyAdmin is an admin system for MySQL. Can I use the former to replace the latter? On browsing I found puppetlabs-mysql. Is it a module for MySQL?

TIA

B.R.

Puppet is a configuration manager, not an admin tool - there's a big difference. So the short answer is no, it won't replace PhpMyAdmin.

Thanks for your advice.

puppetlabs-mysql
They have MySQL module for Puppet under development
https://github.com/puppetlabs/puppetlabs-mysql

I'll keep an eye on it of its usage.

Is "Puppet Enterprise" difficult to learn?

I've never heard of it but it looks very similar to Func (which I find extremely useful)

Whether you meant:
Func: Fedora Unified Network Controller

Thats the one .. it's pretty powerful, communicates over SSL-RPC. It's also a great sys admin tool, comes with plugins for common tasks as well as supporting arbitrary commands against any number of hosts simultaneously.

Thanks. I'll find time testing it. It is quite easy for me testing software here. I'm running Oracle VirtualBox, just clone a new VM. Any suggestion on the server configuration for the test?

To test Func? .. it doesn't really matter but obviously you can get it up and running easily on the Red Hat family being a Fedorahosted project, maybe try CentOS or Fedora.
