Building a Standard Operating Environment on Linux

Christian Unger, University of Queensland

This workshop is intended to introduce an audience of technical staff to
the concepts associated with building a standardised operating environment
for the server environment. It covers with full worked examples how to
build:

  • a repository server using;
  • a kickstart environment; and
  • a Puppetmaster to manage the fleet of servers.

The biggest single focus of the workshop is introducing the audience to
Puppet which occupies approximately two thirds of the workshop and is
platform agnostic. The course features Puppet examples for both Linux/Unix
and OS X.
