A Simple Puppet Master/Node/Agent Starter Guide

If you’re looking for a simple, quick starter guide to setting up a basic Puppet master/agent between VM’s then you should take a look at this blog I came across from a Google search. I’m putting this here as a bookmark to myself:

http://www.6tech.org/2013/01/how-to-install-puppet-open-source-on-centos-6-3/

Edit:

Pushing an example shell script to some agents (puppetnode):

[master ~]# cat /etc/puppet/manifests/site.pp
node "puppetnode"
{
	file { "/usr/local/bin/repoconf.sh" :
		mode => 0755,
		owner => root,
		group => root,
		source => "puppet:///modules/bin/repoconf.sh"
	}
	exec { "/usr/local/bin/repoconf.sh" :
		require => File["/usr/local/bin/repoconf.sh"]
	}
	package { "nc" :
		ensure => latest,
		require => Exec["/usr/local/bin/repoconf.sh"]
	}
}
[master ~]# cat /etc/puppet/modules/bin/files/repoconf.sh
#!/bin/bash
echo `date` >> /tmp/custom.puppet.sh.log
[puppetnode ~]# puppet agent -t
