NOTE:

  • You can see an example of Puppet module to manipulate PicOS configuration on our Github repository:

           https://github.com/Pica8/Configuration-Managers

  • If the FTP server is connected via the Eth0/1 port, you need to add the string sudo ip vrf exec mgmt-vrf before the apt-get command when executing the apt-get operation.

    For example:

    admin@Xorplus:~$ sudo ip vrf exec mgmt-vrf apt-get update

     

    If sudo ip vrf exec mgmt-vrf is not added, find the next hop routing information from the default VRF. For the usage of VRF, refer to the VRF configuration guide.


Step 1 - Use the correct repository for the specific application and CPU on the switch. Pica8 support can help in the choice of repository.

admin@Roma$sudo more /etc/apt/sources.list | grep -v "#"
deb http://ftp.debian-ports.org/debian/ unstable main

For a typical puppet installation, the latest standard debian repo is advised.


Step 2 - Update the debian packages on PicOS

admin@XorPlus$sudo apt-get update
Hit http://ftp.tw.debian.org stable Release.gpg
Hit http://ftp.tw.debian.org stable Release
Hit http://ftp.tw.debian.org stable/main powerpc Packages
Hit http://ftp.tw.debian.org stable/main Translation-en
Reading package lists... Done
admin@XorPlus$


Step 3 - Install puppet client and configure it

sudo apt-get install puppet

Look at the puppet documentation to understand how to connect the puppet client to a puppet server. A simple installation would require at least minor modification on the puppet.conf file.


more /etc/puppet/puppet.conf
[agent]
server = master.local.pica8.com


Step 4 - Verify Puppet installation

admin@Roma$sudo puppet agent -t
