I use openSUSE (Leap 15.1 at present) for my desktops and am thinking of using puppet to manage the growing number of physical & virtual servers with a variety of OSes … but I can’t find an easy install path for puppet master & db at a reasonably recent build (e.g. version 6.19).
Is there a reason why puppet seems to have dropped off openSUSE around the time Leap 15.0 was released?
Is anyone using puppet on oS Leap?
If you have specific issues or questions, if you post those then people can suggest easy (hopefully!) ways to overcome.
Although I don’t use Puppet/Chef/SALT/etc I can’t imagine why openSUSE would pose any unusual problems.
And, although SALT is officially supported and AutoYaST is a powerful tool unique to openSUSE, those are not the only ways you can deploy.
I myself prefer to write install and configuration scripts that are run in generic openSUSE (and sometimes SUSE) which makes special machines I manage maybe not “zero touch” but only one-touch. An example is what I posted recently that sets up a LEAP 15.2 for installing ocsinventory
I also have posted similar scripts (some are obsolete but still contain valuable techniques) in my Wiki
From what I’ve seen of Puppet, I can’t imagine what kind of problems a person would run into…
Thanks @thibdb13 and @tsu2. I’m looking for an administration system which I can use multi-distribution (including openSUSE, Ubuntu, CentOS) … I’ll check out SALT.
