How to Quickly Setup Puppet (Part 1)

By Tony Fontanilla | Published July 25th, 2016

Puppet is the most well-known configuration management tool in the DevOps world and used by systems administrators to centrally manage large numbers of servers and computer systems. There are several Puppet quickstart guides online. However, these guides are unnecessarily long and complicated in my opinion. For example, an administrator learning Puppet for the first time can download and run the Puppet Learning virtual machine image.  Once downloaded, the admin can then learn how to configure Puppet by using a GUI interface. However, when the admin starts using Puppet for real they discover the GUI interface is only on the paid version.  As a result, the admin must configure everything by editing text files. To me such setup guidelines seem unnecessarily complicated as a beginner would likely not buy the premium version before testing the software.
