Puppet Automation Vmware/Linux

Hello Guys,

We are trying to bring Puppet to manage/automate our servers. We are running Linux boxes on Vsphere5 now and manually creating VMs using template, but we need to automate like blow

-Create VMs in command line and need to choose the datastores as we need?

IanTh

you cannot setup an ip address on a  template I remember doing a project for server 2012 vmware template and I tried to do the same by p2v a server and then v2p back set the static ip address and I got errors tring to revert to the template
Your help has saved me hundreds of hours of internet surfing.
