So today I was reading over http://spacewalk.redhat.com/ and I thought to myself how awesome would this be to implement into clearsdn to manage updates over several clearos systems and manage conf files over several boxes.

Presently I have Two boxes now in other countries which I am admining and from an MSP style perspective it could be useful for admins who have stack of systems to look after

Food for thought

    Thread revival time....

    So I ended up building one the other day, on centos 6 with postgre I have to say.... its awesome. The client installed on 6.3 pro without any problems.

    Currently building up the channels for it now.

    Presently I am thinking I might use the kick start side of it for deployment so I can provision xen clear guests and control my patching which should be nice.

    I have looked at puppetlabs but the cost puts me off somewhat.

    Followed these two guides

    I know this thread is pretty stale...but just fyi:

    You do not need to use Oracle to setup and use Spacewalk.

    On the other hand, I use Cobbler and puppet to do the same. Thinking on making a puppet install/configure script.

    I got to use a friends deployment serer which is running a combination of puppet and spacewalk on centos

    So I am sure it will run on clearos

    When I get some time over of the xmas break I might have a crack at getting it working, the whole oracle 10g db side of it looks a but daunting

    Anyone interested have a read over this
