I don’t know if anyone can comment on best practice for running a test/dev version of docker? Whether it be docker or something else.
I have been looking into running a test instance of foreman to connect to our test AD test the upgrade process before running through this on the live system. I’m keen to populate the system with much of the puppet classes and configuration that is in the live instance as I really want to get an idea of what might break during a Foreman update/upgrade.
I have tried restoring the live system to the test system with the foreman-maintain command but this is looking to restore the backups to a server with the same hostname. I’m getting the impression I’m not doing this in an advised way.
