Debian updating to squeeze

Please review updated readme if you install Foreman directly via your Puppet infrastructure.

debian updating to squeeze-86

The first version, which is released with Foreman 1.3, is not yet feature-complete and should be treated as a “preview”.

To install the new Foreman command line client, install package Support for Amazon EC2’s Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) feature has been added, allowing selection of VPC security groups when creating new hosts.

Existing ENC/Reports scripts will need a change to the latest version, which can be found in the installer git repository: Configuration values defined via file are now presented in the Foreman Settings page as read-only settings.

Every time value is changed in Foreman automatically updates the database. The new API v2 is still work in progress, there are some changes to the API, parameters and output format.

The smart proxy manages remote services and is generally installed with all Foreman installations to allow for TFTP, DHCP, DNS, and Puppet, and the Puppet CA.

A Smart-Proxy is located on or near a machine that performs a specific function and helps foreman orchestrate the process of commissioning a new host.The new “experimental” API version (v2) has been improved, providing new features while retaining API compatibility. To use API v2, users must pass “version=2” in the header.For example: New features include REMOTE_USER support, data format consolidation, better logging, documentation, smart classes support, network interfaces, power management and boot device APIs.To accomplish this, the way facts and reports are uploaded was changed.Specifically, Foreman itself now uses a JSON format, and the ENC (node.rb) and Puppet report processor (foreman.rb) have been updated to handle changing Puppet-specific data into JSON.Refer to the installation section of the manual for more information.
