I am working to implement Puppet in our infrastructure.

We will be using RedHat Satellite 6 for the deployment of new servers (foreman backend)

What are the best practices to create the user accounts in these systems?

Here are my "requirements"

  • All systems have a subset of accounts created (sysadmins and base services)
  • Group based accounts to be created (for example: a server in group "Database" will have the DBA accounts created but all other servers will not have these accounts created)
  • Some accounts have ssh keys files

What are the best practices to create users accounts based on "groups" when provisionning servers with Puppet?

Thanks,
