The system administration folks here are big fans of Puppet. After deciding to take it seriously and reading a bit about it (yes, I'm behind the times), the advantages are clear and Puppet or some other configuration management software should probably be in the mix for any well managed database environment. Ansible seems to be picking up steam in Oracle-land. At least that's true for my twitter feed and rss subscriptions. Is anyone else out there using Puppet to perform DBA related tasks? If so, do you have any pointers on where to start? Is there any reason to avoid Puppet and choose another technology? There is a free module on Puppet Forge at Does anyone have any experience with that?

Thanks in advance for any input.
