We’re abandoning Puppet for our database installs and patching and are

with our database installs running the exact same process each time.
It might be that the people in charge of Puppet here just weren’t good
enough at it but we ended up doing a lot of manual installs after Puppet
failures. It seems to work well for most non-database related tasks.

*Subject:* Configuration management / Puppet for Oracle DBA'ing
The system administration folks here are big fans of Puppet. After
deciding to take it seriously and reading a bit about it (yes, I'm behind
the times), the advantages are clear and Puppet or some other configuration
management software should probably be in the mix for any well managed
database environment. Ansible seems to be picking up steam in
Oracle-land. At least that's true for my twitter feed and rss
subscriptions. Is anyone else out there using Puppet to perform DBA
related tasks? If so, do you have any pointers on where to start? Is
there any reason to avoid Puppet and choose another technology? There is a
free module on Puppet Forge at https://forge.puppet.com/biemond/oradb
Does anyone have any experience with that?
Thanks in advance for any input.
