SUSE/SLES with Puppet agent install in AutoYAST


#1

I realize this is probably a long shot. But is anyone in here doing SUSE/SLES deploys with AutoYAST/AutoYaST2 AND has it set up to install Puppet as part of the provisioning script?

Ive got the server all setup, I just cant seem to figure out how to get Puppet AOI 4.10.9 installed.

Thanks

The point in Foreman AutoYast template where the puppet setup script is called:

This is the snipped for the configuration and installation of the puppet agent:

Hope that helps …

Cheers,
