Have been beavering away over the Xmas break, getting the beginnings of an SOE up and running using Ansible for the initial setup.
The plan is probably to switch to Puppet for most of the subsequent setup, but Ansible is a good tool especially for the early stages.
Currently targeting Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL)/CentOS/Fedora & Ubuntu.
Have done a project page which I’ll add more to soon, here.
Project is here, on GitHub.
