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?

Can we do it?
