This plug-in enables CoreOS updates using The Foreman without using the public update infrastructure. To follow along with common Foreman architecture, you need this Foreman plug-in installed and a Smart-Proxy plugin. The smart-proxy plug-in does all the heavy lifting. The Foreman plug-in shows facts and reports for your hosts. Foreman core already supports deploying CoreOS hosts and is great for on-premise setups. This plug-in enables you to better manage your servers.

See Plugins install instructions for how to install Foreman plugins. You need to install the package tfm-rubygem-foreman_omaha or use foreman-installer.

To prepare the Foreman database, issue the following command:

foreman-rake db:migrate SCOPE=foreman_omaha

This plugins adds a global method transpile_container_linux_config to the template renderer that transpiles yaml to ignition. Make sure the binary ct is in your PATH when you want to use this feature.


You need to revert all database changes made when installing this plug-in:

foreman-rake db:migrate SCOPE=foreman_omaha VERSION=0

You can then safely remove the operating system package and restart Foreman.
