Let's play with Uyuni: A complete opensource solution to keep multiple GNU/Linux systems configured and up-to-date
Julio González Gil
SUSE Manager Release Engineer since 2017. Background in Cloud Computing, BigData and DevOps, and Free Software advocate. I am not a developer, but I make small contributions to some projects or help them with doc, packaging and release engineering.
When I am not sitting next to a computer (does that happen?) I still invest some time learning History (mostly late modernity/contemporary), reading books ("Drowning Towers" by George Turner, and "Earth Abides" by George R. Stewart are the latest) and improving my knowledge of English and Russian languages (Привет всем!)
No video of the event yet, sorry! Meanwhile...
On Saturday, at 11.30, we presented Uyuni, the public developed SUSE Manager.
Let's now discover how easy is keeping your systems configured and up-to-date via Uyuni even for huge infrastructures.
This will be a live sessions where you will be using your laptop, and for that you will need:
- A laptop with at least 5GB of free RAM after booting (we STRONGLY suggest 6GB free) and 80GB of free diskspace.
- We strongly recommend using a GNU/Linux distribution (we will be using openSUSE to guide you). Otherwise any other OS that can run the software below should be fine, but be aware of the possible complications, specially with MS Windows!
- A Git client.
- A SSH client.
- Vagrant >= 2.0 (https://www.vagrantup.com)
- VirtualBox (any version supported by Vagrant >= 2.0, when in doubt, use a recent one) (https://www.virtualbox.org)
- Access to a DockerHub account, with a repository called 'opensuse-test' where you can upload images (if you don't have already, create one for free at https://hub.docker.com/)
- A local clone of https://github.com/openSUSE/openesusecon-management/ (will be available on Saturday 26th).
And as soon as you have the local clone of the Git repositoy:
- For each of the folders inside the vagrant folder:
* Access the folder
* run 'vagrant up && vagrant suspend'
This will take some time as it will download ~50GB of data for the Vagrant images.
