FATE#319830, FATE#319843 and FATE#319842 propose integration of AutoYaST with different software configuration management systems like Salt, Chef and Puppet.

During the past CSM we came up with a proof of concept and Hack Week 14 looks like the perfect scenario to develop it further.

We plan to:

  • Add support for retrieving/re-using authentication keys (done)
  • Support master-less operation (done)
  • Improve user's feedback (done)
  • Discuss about possible integration with SUMA (done)
  • Add Ansible/Chef support (currently only Salt and Puppet are supported)

Final result

  • We have a working proof of concept with support for Salt and Puppet. ** Support master-less and client/master operation ** Realtime user's feedback ** Retrieve authentication keys (support the same schemes used by AutoYaST when retrieving the profile).
  • More information is available in this blog post

Future

  • Improve error handling
  • More tests. It would be nice to have some integration tests in place.
  • Ask for feedback.

      During these two days, some things have been implemented:

      • Support for retrieving authentication keys. They can be fetched from a HTTP or a FTP server and even from a local device (like a USB stick).
      • Masterless mode should be working now (more tests are needed).

      The UI has been improved and now you can see what's the provisioning tool doing in real time.
