Hi Lukas, and thank you for your reply.
Sincerely I don’t know now from what how-to I gather the info. As far as I know, I have searched a lot for how-to’s last January, to start build the demo for the client.
Including a lot of docs from RedHat site. I just compiled the info that better suited for my case. I choose them to use Centos for that, as I’m familiar with that distro, and it seamed very good supported from Foreman team and all over the forums.
Since the client uses primarily SLES 11 for SAP, and I couldn’t build on top of it, I used a Centos 6.5 setup, then I wrote my own how to from my trial and error.
It was that ‘doc’ I used when I faced the problem when I ported the VM to the infra of the client. The Centos VM could not communicate outside the Hypervisor, but I had no time to investigate the problem in-depth .
So my decision and my team, was to build on top of an OS that didn’t face that issue. First I tried the openSUSE but time was short and I couldn’t install the Foreman on top of it.
Again, I went to Fedora 19, since there are ‘similarities’ between Centos and Fedora, I choose that one, and it worked well on the SLES KVM Hypervisors (3).
Regarding the addition of the repo you mentioned, I didn’t used it, it never occurred to me, and since Fedora was giving me the RPM's from their repos I never thought on using it, my bad probably.
But, I still can try adding it and see what happens.
Currently, we have it working, but is it working well?? I don’t know, I’m still in the very beginning on working with puppet and Foreman. I’m having a issue with puppet agent not ‘working’ well on the Fedora itself, but I can investigate it latter, as the compute resources are built now and the Hosts are ok too, for now …
We want this to provision VM’s for SAP, with templates from the ones that we already have built. Let’s see if I can do that. I hope so.
I can build a test machine on my own lab and see how it goes and how it performs against this one …
Quick question, is there any how-to’s to ‘move/migrate’ the settings/DB from this to a new machine?
Just in case I decide that the new build is working better or is a better ‘build’ than this one I made in a hurry.
Again, thank you for your patience, for all off us messing with this, and the ‘understanding’ for keeping supporting us with your knowledge.

I adapted it for Fedora.
what how-to? Is that ours? Does the tutorial describe puppet or foreman
installation on Fedora 19?
Foreman supports F19 officially. We have everything:
Foreman :: Manual
Lukas, once again, thank you for your support and understanding.
I wish I understood
Currently I am shooting in the dark. I need more input.
