A couple times a year someone comes in to #gluster and thinks it would be awesome to ave a puppet module that you could define servers and the pupet module would automatically manage adding those servers as peers and dynamically changing volumes to utilize the new assets. They get inspired and start writing manifests... then they realize they actually have to get something completed and abandon that pie-in-the-sky philosophy and just use the very convenient cli.Joe Julian 5 years ago

A GlusterFS user from IRC asked me about my puppet management of KVM in RHEL/CentOS and how it works. I started to write this post two weeks ago and had to stop because although it works great, I figured that wasn't the answer he was looking for. I looked at the puppet module that I knew I'd hacked on from Carla Souza and after 2 hours of trying to figure out what I had done, gave up and went to bed. I finally was able to look at it again and it wasn't quite as hacked up as I thought I remembered. I've since forked hers and added my changes.Joe Julian 5 years, 6 months ago
I have a thing that needed to change this one time, and I don't want to have to stick around to change it. Not having to be hands-on is the reason I use puppet, and I wanted a way to make puppet do it.Joe Julian 5 years, 7 months ago
In case anyone's interested, I have some puppet modules I've created.
