This post targets primarily users new to Foreman. It can be interesting for those,
who would like to start using Foreman but feel lost or who just installed Foreman
and would like to investigate its capabilities. We’ll assume a fresh Foreman
installation without any plugin and with the default configuration. The primary focus
will be on on filling in the data about the infrastructure. If you’re searching for
installation instructions, please take a look at Installing Foreman chapter
of the Foreman manual. This post assumes installation using the foreman-installer.

Thank you for dropping this Xmas present to the foreman community. This article is exactly what I need to move forward with foreman/katello.
One suggestion, please import your article into Google Doc or other work-processing software. I found many spelling typos after converting into gdoc.
Good idea, will do for the next post. I plan to talk about ongoing inventory updates next time, if you have some other topic you’re interested in, let me know.
I’ll try to cover this in the next post, however this should be well described in our manual, see chapter 3.5.5. The key is to deploy the facts and reports callback on your puppetserver (it’s already there if you used foreman-installer).
Nice content indeed, great work.
