how does puppet different from Redhat satellite?
how does puppet look different from Redhat Satellite (which tracks down what each system is running, sync'ing with redhat channels etc)
More information to chew on: While Satellite 6 contains a Puppet Master, it is NOT Puppet Enterprise and it only supports Red Hat Enterprise Linux nodes.
Since this question was first posted, there has been Puppet Enterprise Integration with Satellite 6 Details here: https://puppet.com/blog/puppet-enterp...
Puppet is a configuration management solution, where as satellite (and the pulp project) are repository management systems.
Puppet goes above what satellite/pulp does by managing files, packages, and systems. (Called the puppet trifecta)
Some people combine puppet and pulp to create their own in house 'puppet forge' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ryxXF...
I think it is worth mentioning that the next release of Satellite (version 6 - Red Hat announced it should be released mid-2014) will include Puppet to provide better configuration management capability. Satellite 5 can provide Provisioning, Monitoring, Auditing, Package Management, Configuration Management (basic), Remote Command capability, Repository Management (both Red Hat and others). Satellite 6 will provide all that and more.
