While working as DevOps Engineer one of the tools by definition that we use more, often is Puppet. Guess most people will think that you are 100% expert, which is not always the case. So, I need to create this post and track record of my own experiments with Puppet and (PuppetLabs + Vagrant)
You might as what is Vagrant ?
==> "Vagrant is an open-source software product for building and maintaining portable virtual software development environments, e.g. for VirtualBox, Hyper-V, Docker, VMware, and AWS. ... Vagrant simplifies the necessary software configuration management in order to increase development productivity. " read more here: https://www.vagrantup.com/intro/index.html
The initial indentation was to gain better understanding puppet file structure. So, I decided to use Puppetlabs for this ...
So, basically. I did create installed
- Installed Vagrant
- Used the Vagrant init command to pull the puppetlabs ubuntu VM
- Which created a file "Vagrantfile"
- created a dir puppetlabs
And then started the Setup, so here are the Logs ..

Welcome to Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (GNU/Linux 4.4.0-21-generic i686)
* Documentation: https://help.ubuntu.com/
After this I have my Puppet Labs VM running ... After this point was easy, I just needed to goo into the puppet installation dir and look into the dir structure.
