Running Puppet on Solaris

Few months back I tried setting up Puppet on Solaris platform. Puppetlabs provides bits for Puppet Enterprise software for Solaris in their official website. Here is the brief discussion on how to get Puppet running under unix platform.

I assume that you have already downloaded Puppet Enterprise software for Solaris. Once downloaded, you can execute the installer as shown below:

bash-3.2# ./puppet-enterprise-installer
