I'm investigating whether I can somehow make the puppet ecosystem utilize our existing Microsoft Enterprise CA rather than being its own CA.
Since puppet touts that all of the system is "standard SSL", my guess is that it is completely possible to do this without much changing of puppet, HOWEVER it's likely a huge manual headache unless puppet is edited to make the proper calls to the enterprise
Puppet Labs, a data center automation company, is announcing today that virtualization giant (and previous investor) VMware has invested $30 million in the company. This brings the company’s total funding to $46 million. Puppet Labs’ other investors include True Ventures, Cisco, Google Ventures, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, and Radar Partners.
So a few weeks ago I started on the path to using puppet to automate all the configs/services. At the time I was using the EPEL repo, which installed version 2.6.x. After some reading I was trying to gain access to the flatten method available via the puppet stdlib, and thought it was available by default in the newer 2.7.x version.
