i use puppet to semi-automate management and maintenance of a good few
(70+) linux hosts. if i knew more about puppet, that could probably
read ?fully-automate?, but that?s my failing, not the system ..
you didn?t say what you wanted to do - if you?re looking for generic
support for network equipment (read: routers+switches) you?re likely
to find ansible a better fit, since there?s no ?client? involved
here; just ssh.
of course, if you?re not already using rancid/oxidised, you?re
missing step #1.
