Migrating to PE from OS Puppet and modules

We have had a older-style, simplistic installation of Puppet 3.x open source (and earlier versions), where our many manifests are living under /etc/puppet/manifests/classes, distributing files from /etc/puppet/files (with appropriate auth.conf config), all running under Passenger. It's not pretty, but it's worked.

My question is relevant to migrating to Puppet Enterprise and what will be involved, such as requiring me to spend time writing custom modules -- something I've not done yet.

The main thing you will want to do is to get all your classes organized into modules, and serve the files for the various classes from the modules themselves. This is something you would want to do even if you were not planning on moving to Puppet Enterprise, as it is easier to maintain.

It may be possible to get PE working with your existing setup, by installing it then adjusting the config files as needed, though I would not recommend this approach.

There is a pe_upgrade module on the forge, which can assist with the actual upgrade process.
