Hi -

If Puppet is not the tool that pushes out the configuration to a server, is it possible after the environment has been created to capture the configuration after creation for Puppet to ensure that configuration stays in effect?

Thanks in advance for your help!

kind of using puppet back to front - however maybe something like auditing could help - you'd need to specify/script what you wanted to audit - my guess is system config files and rpms..?

Yeah you are right.

I wasn't sure if Puppet had the ability to take a "manual" snapshot of certain files on the server to then use as the baseline.
