Hey, I'm totally new to Puppet and haven't had a chance to configure my own packages before. Can anyone give me some pointers on how to get this done? IE - are there some good tutorials, etc. that will guide me? I've been hunting around but I couldn't find a whole lot.

Basically what I have is a small bin file that installs an agent on a server and I want to 'puppet-ize' this so that I can install it with the same command line options as if I was running it on the machine.

Any ideas?

I have done it using RPMs (which self-install), but not with parameters.
package { "mysql":
       provider => rpm,
       ensure => installed,
       source => "http://myserver.com/rpms/mysql-rhel5.rpm"
}

Open in new window

Check out these references & examples pages for details on possibilities:
