puppet-device - Manage remote network devices
Retrieves all configurations from the puppet master and apply them to the remote devices configured in /etc/puppet/device.conf. Currently must be run out periodically, using cron or something similar.
puppet device [-d|--debug] [--detailed-exitcodes] [-V|--version] [-h|--help] [-l|--logdest syslog|<file>|console] [-v|--verbose] [-w|--waitforcert <seconds>]
Once the client has a signed certificate for a given remote device, it will retrieve its configuration and apply it.
One need a /etc/puppet/device.conf file with the following content: [remote.device.fqdn] type type url url where: * type: the current device type (the only value at this time is cisco) * url: an url allowing to connect to the device Supported url must conforms to: scheme://user:password@hostname/?query with: * scheme: either ssh or telnet * user: username, can be omitted depending on the switch/router configuration * password: the connection password * query: this is device specific. Cisco devices supports an enable parameter whose value would be the enable password.
Note that any configuration parameter that´s valid in the configuration file is also a valid long argument. For example, ´server´ is a valid configuration parameter, so you can specify ´--server servername´ as an argument. --debug Enable full debugging. --detailed-exitcodes Provide transaction information via exit codes. If this is enabled, an exit code of ´2´ means there were changes, an exit code of ´4´ means there were failures during the transaction, and an exit code of ´6´ means there were both changes and failures. --help Print this help message --logdest Where to send messages. Choose between syslog, the console, and a log file. Defaults to sending messages to syslog, or the console if debugging or verbosity is enabled. --verbose Turn on verbose reporting. --waitforcert This option only matters for daemons that do not yet have certificates and it is enabled by default, with a value of 120 (seconds). This causes +puppet agent+ to connect to the server every 2 minutes and ask it to sign a certificate request. This is useful for the initial setup of a puppet client. You can turn off waiting for certificates by specifying a time of 0.
