I do puppet coding for a variety of clients for delivery of Oracle
We have had none of the failures in delivering Oracle with puppet that Jay
Both Puppet and Ansible are viable tools for delivering Oracle. However
you deliver Oracle for all possibilities you are stepping int othe deep end
of the pool, not because of the tools, but because of Oracle itself.

I'm a big fan of Ansible. I've used it on many projects Oracle related. It
is very extensible and fairly easy to pick up, and since the Red Hat
acquisition, it's feature development has really taken off. Take a look at
Ansible Tower to see what I mean.

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.

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.
