Getting Started with Puppet on Windows - Josh Cooper, Puppet Labs

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Unix sysadmins have had the benefit of using Puppet's simple declarative language for managing their systems for many years. For Windows sysadmins, this has only become a reality in the last few years. This presentation aims to describe how to get started managing Windows systems with Puppet. We'll cover Puppet's applications, built-in resources types, Windows modules, and strategies for dealing with Windows idiosyncrasies. The process is startlingly simple, and may come as a surprise to anyone that has had to deal with SMB, DCOM, or security descriptors.
