How to configure servers with cdist

Introduction

We are using cdist to manage our system configurations.

Applying changes to servers

When a server needs to be (re-)configured, login to control.ungleich.ch with ssh agent forwarding enabled. The username is the same as the customer you want to apply configurations for. If you want for instance to configure the ungleich infrastructure, proceed as follows:

# Login to configuration server
ssh -A ungleich@control.ungleich.ch

# Ensure cdist configuration is up-to-date
cd ~/.cdist
git pull

# Configure
cdist config -vv <hostname>
