Puppet is a configuration management tool that allows us to enforce consistent configurations across multiple platforms, and Puppet open source even lets us do it for free. In this lab, we'll configure an open source Puppet master on a CentOS 7 server, then start bringing our infra under Puppet's control by installing the Puppet agent on a second node. We'll also make sure our certificate authority is up and running by accepting our node's cert on the master.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
