Puppet modules for managing Foreman

The installer can be used in multiple ways:
  • Installs Foreman as a standalone application or using apache passenger.
  • Installs Foreman Proxy
  • May install an example puppet master setup using passenger as well, including the tweaks required for foreman.

Installation

A note on older puppet versions

The "master" branches are being updated with parameterized classes. If you are running a version of Puppet which doesn't support this (0.25.x or lower) then you should check out the "oldstable" versions of the modules. We will try to fix bugs in either branch, so bug reports are appreciated in either case. Currently, "oldstable" branches exist for:
  • puppet-foreman_proxy (master not parameterized yet, but contains references to experimental DHCP/DNS modules)
  • puppet-puppet (master parameterized for both agent and server, see README for details)

Using GIT

git clone --recursive git://github.com/theforeman/foreman-installer.git              (for the latest installer)
git clone --recursive git://github.com/theforeman/foreman-installer.git -b oldstable (for puppet 0.25.x or lower)

Direct download

Since we are no longer using one repository for all sources, a single tarball is no longer provided.
You can either follow the script below, or download the source code for each module on its own:

http://github.com/theforeman/puppet-apache/tarball/master
http://github.com/theforeman/puppet-foreman/tarball/master
http://github.com/theforeman/puppet-foreman_proxy/tarball/master
http://github.com/theforeman/puppet-git/tarball/master

http://github.com/theforeman/puppet-puppet/tarball/master
http://github.com/theforeman/puppet-tftp/tarball/master
http://github.com/theforeman/puppet-xinetd/tarball/master

Optional Modules:

These provide support for the experimental DHCP/DNS auto configuration in the proxy. Use at your own risk (but send me bug reports :P)

Requirements

if you are using RHEL, EPEL repo must be enabled http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL

if you are using Debian (or Ubuntu), see the additional notes in README.debian

Make sure SELinux is disabled or permissive when running on Fedora/RHEL.

Setup/Configuration

Please review the variables under */manifests/params.pp

only Foreman

echo include foreman | puppet --modulepath /path_to/extracted_tarball

Both foreman and its proxy:

echo include foreman, foreman_proxy | puppet --modulepath /path_to/extracted_tarball

On your Puppet Master

if you just want to include the relavant bits to run on your puppet master you may

include foreman::params, foreman::config::enc, foreman::config::reports

All in one box (Puppet, Foreman, Proxy)

if you want to install it all on one box (2.6.x and older)

export MODULE_PATH="/etc/puppet/modules/common" 
mkdir -p $MODULE_PATH
for mod in apache foreman foreman_proxy git passenger puppet tftp xinetd; do
  mkdir -p $MODULE_PATH/$mod
  wget http://github.com/theforeman/puppet-$mod/tarball/master -O - | tar xzvf - -C $MODULE_PATH/$mod --strip-components=1
done;
echo include puppet, puppet::server, foreman, foreman_proxy | puppet --modulepath $MODULE_PATH

if you want to install it all on one box (2.7.x and newer)

export MODULE_PATH="/etc/puppet/modules/common" 
mkdir -p $MODULE_PATH
for mod in apache foreman foreman_proxy git passenger puppet tftp xinetd; do
  mkdir -p $MODULE_PATH/$mod
  wget http://github.com/theforeman/puppet-$mod/tarball/master -O - | tar xzvf - -C $MODULE_PATH/$mod --strip-components=1
done;
echo include puppet, puppet::server, foreman, foreman_proxy | puppet apply --modulepath $MODULE_PATH
