The solution is easy. I should have tested more before posting. Here is the manifest code that does it:

package { 'CSWspider':
    ensure => installed,
    source => '/var/opt/csw/pkgutil/packages/spider-1.1.1,REV=2006.11.18-SunOS5.8-sparc-CSW.pkg'
}

I did a test by doing a simple manifest that does:

package { 'spider': ensure => installed, }

And I get :

err: /Stage[main]//Package[spider]/ensure: change from absent to present failed ... (more)

Hi.

I would like to install sudo on our Solaris 10 servers and I can't have all my servers connect to the Internet. So I was thinking of putting the Sun Freeware packages on my Puppet master and installing them on my agents. I'm still a Puppet beginner so I was wondering how I would go about doing this.

Thanks.

2013-02-05 13:34:26 -0500 asked a question Puppet for hardening hosts

Hi. We are a Linux place and we recently purchased a new Solaris server. I was in the process of writing a shell script to do our hardening steps but I figured this would be a good time to implement Puppet in our environment.

So I want to use Puppet to do my Solaris hardening instead of running a post-install script. Is there something out there that I can base myself on to start this? This will be my first use of Puppet.

Also, I went through the Learning Puppet lessons with the learning VM. Now I want to start ... (more)
