A Vagrant plugin that ensures the desired version of Puppet is installed via the Puppet Labs package repo. This proves very useful when using Vagrant with provisioner-less baseboxes OR cloud images.
This plugin has been verified to work with the following Vagrant providers:
- VirtualBox (part of core)
- AWS (ships in vagrant-aws plugin)
- Rackspace (ships in vagrant-rackspace plugin)
- DigitalOcean (ships in vagrant-digital_ocean plugin)
It may work with other Vagrant providers but is not guaranteed to!
Ensure you have downloaded and installed Vagrant 1.1.x from the Vagrant downloads page.
Installation is performed in the prescribed manner for Vagrant 1.1 plugins.
$ vagrant plugin install vagrant-puppet-install
The Puppet Install Vagrant plugin automatically hooks into the Vagrant provisioning
middleware. You specify the version of the
puppet-common package you want
installed using the
puppet_install.puppet_version config key. The version string
should be a valid Puppet release (ie.
The Puppet version is validated against the RubyGems API. So as long as the version you give is listed there, it will allow you to install.
You may wish to disable this validation. This could be useful if you've got limited bandwidth on a bad internet connection or you're on a proxy, or your specifying a version that won't match against the RubyGems API (such as a custom patched version of Puppet).
If you wish to disable this validation you can disable it like so:
Vagrant.configure("2") do |config| config.puppet_install.validate_version = false ... end
Install the latest version of Puppet:
Vagrant.configure("2") do |config| config.puppet_install.puppet_version = :latest ... end
Install a specific version of Puppet:
Vagrant.configure("2") do |config| config.puppet_install.puppet_version = "2.7.11" ... end
Specify a custom install script:
Vagrant.configure("2") do |config| config.puppet_install.install_url = 'http://acme.com/install.sh' # config.puppet_install.install_url = 'http://acme.com/install.msi' # config.puppet_install.install_url = '/some/path/on/the/host' ... end
The unit tests can be run with:
bundle exec rake #or bundle exec rake test:unit
The test are also executed by Travis CI every time code is pushed to GitHub.
The acceptance tests will be run against the Vagrant providers mentioned above.
The acceptance tests can be run with:
# to run them all rake test:acceptance # or specify a provider rake test:acceptance['virtualbox']
And as expected, all acceptance tests only uses provisioner-less baseboxes and cloud images!
