Lab 11


  • Use Puppet to:
    • Create grader account
    • Install updates
    • Install packages
      • OpenSSH, vim, curl, git, fortune, man
    • Add SSH public key to grader account
    • Configure Node Exporter & Prometheus on the node


Use puppet functionality to create a single manifest file to do the required functionality mentioned in the goals [1].

For 10 points Extra Credit: Write it so it prompts the user for their sudo password vs requiring puppet to be run as root.
