Using Puppet Orchestrator
Puppet Enterprise's orchestrator allows us to perform on-demand Puppet runs across our node, plus execute various prewritten tasks on targeted nodes. This process essentially grants us more control over when our modules are applied, and when tackling the circumstances they’re faced with at the time of being added. Similarly, as we orchestrate actions via Puppet tasks, we can fine-tune our managed nodes without having to log in to the CLI.
In this hands-on lab, we'll be using the Puppet orchestrator to trigger a Puppet run on a provided node, and then use tasks to install and kickstart a wide array of packages on our host.
