Hi all! I've a big problem with the following:

I want to set a mountpoint on Host B, but in order to be mounted, i've to create a share on Host A. So it would be necessary to create at first the share on Host A, then directly trigger the manifest for mounting on Host B.

How could I do this? I know the possibillity to use an mc-command, but right now, I don't want to youse MC.

Has anyone an idea???

Puppet is sometimes called node-centric. Meaning it really is a tool for managing the state of individual nodes. Things are a little bit less node-centric when you start investigating exported resources but the node-centrism remains until you start considering tools for "server orchestration" such as MCollective. MCollective is integrated with Puppet Enterprise and can be installed and configured separately in a FLOSS-based Puppet environment.

If you know a bit of Ruby, you can write extensions to MCollective to enable cross-node coordination/orchestration tasks like the one you mention above.
