Clarification on Puppet 3.8, Cloud Provisioner, and VMWare?
X-post from mailing list, hopefully not out of bounds.
We're getting ready to upgrade to 3.8 PE and I noticed this in the 3.8 documentation:
"Important: Cloud Provisioner is deprecated in PE 3.8, and will be removed in future versions of PE. We recommend that you see the AWS supported module for cloud provisioning."
Currently, we're only interested in VM creation with VMWare / vSphere and the node_vmware method seems to be exactly what we want to do. Is the entirety of Cloud Privisioner deprecated in 3.8, or just the particular AWS provisioner? If the entire thing is deprecated, what's the alternative for VMWare / vSphere? (Hopefully without switching / setting up an entire Razor infrastructure.)
