Speaking Puppet


In Chapter 2, we installed the Puppet master daemon and a Puppet client, and connected our first node to the master. In the process of connecting that first node, we also created a basic site manifest in the site.pp file. Our first manifest was simple and set the user and group ownership and the permissions of the /etc/passwd file. But Puppet is capable of much more than simply setting the permissions of a single file. It can install packages, ensure services are configured correctly and started (or stopped), configure applications, and perform numerous other functions.
