VMware host profiles alternative?

asked 2016-06-27 14:32:46 -0500

I'm not yet a Puppet user, so I'm not fully aware of its capabilities. I'm looking for something to handle VMware ESXi host configuration similar to how their host profiles work. Will Puppet fit the bill? Would the hypervisor need an agent installed (not sure if this is possible)?

I appreciate any feedback or suggestions.

From a quick glance at the documentation I assume that VMware ESXi host profiles configure things like host networking, storage and other settings for a host.

Yes, you could use one of Puppet's network modules and the LVM module to do this in Puppet instead of having VMware do it. Each host will need a Puppet agent installed however.
