Build Status

Overview

This module makes an honest attempt at installing the The Pulp Repository, including it's consumer and administration clients, onto a redhat system of your choice. The Pulp Repo brings to the table (among other things) the ability to host an internal puppet repository (like puppetforge but without the pretty web interface).

Quickstart

Install the server, admin client, and consumer on the same box:

class { 'pulp': }               # Install pulp v2 yum repo
clsss { 'pulp::server': }       # Install pulp server
class { 'pulp::admin_client': } # Install admin client
class { 'pulp::consumer': }     # Install pulp agent and client

# Create a puppet repo
puppet_repo { 'repo_id':
  # Default pulp admin login/password
  ensure       => 'present',
  login        => 'admin',
  password     => 'admin',
  display_name => 'my test repo',
  description  => "I lifted this repo from the pulp puppet module and didn't change the description!",
  feed         => 'http://forge.puppetlabs.com',
  queries      => ['query1', 'query2'],
  schedules    => [ '2012-12-16T00:00Z/P1D', '2012-12-17T00:00Z/P1D' ]
  serve_http   => true,
  serve_https  => true
  notes        => {
    'note1' => 'value 1',
    'note2' => 'value 2'
  }
}

The default configuration is rather nieve. It does nothing beyond what's outlined int The Pulp's installation section. If you want to use this for real you'll likely want to provide additional configuration to secure and customize your installation.

Installation

Detailed information is avaialble in the installation section of The Pulp user guide

Supported Operating Systems

Server

  • RHEL 6
  • Fedora 17 & 18

Consumer

Module Prerequisites

This module needs a few thing to make it go:

  • The EPEL repo of your choice. I tested using stahnma/epel, which seems as good as any.

  • You'll need to disable selinux.

Developing

If you want to issue a pull request, that'd be awesome. Make sure you have a fairly recent version of both vagrant and ruby, then do this:

bundle install
bundle exec rake spec spec:system

TODO

  • Fail when we're being installed on an unsupported OS
  • Enable the installation of puppet modules on a puppetmaster
  • Add rpm repo support
