puppet noop -- persistance
What is the recommended method in putting nodes in noop mode?
My goal is to ensure certain groups of nodes are in noop mode so changes don't mistakenly get applied but I want to know if changes 'would' have been applied or if a node has drifted out of CM.
I could edit puppet.conf manually but that does not scale.
I could use Puppet to manage puppet.conf but if a node is in noop mode a new catalog will not be applied to take it out of noop mode or do an enforcing run to put a node back in conformance.
I could use MCollective and use the --noop and no-noop switches.
I cannot seem to find much material for this use case.
