In Chapter 2 we talked about the ways that you could define your hosts or nodes to Puppet. We talked about specifying them in a variety of forms as node statements in your Puppet manifest files.

This avoids the need to specify large numbers of nodes manually in your manifests files, a solution which is timeconsuming and not scalable.
