Cooking with Cobbler

Gordon introduced the group to the Cobbler install server. This system supports consistent configuration and deployment of multiple Linux systems. Gordon explained the approach used to deploy systems with Cobbler. He demonstrated some examples of the steps needed to configure and deploy a system.

The attendees showed a high level of interest and knowledge of this field. Several people asked about specific scenarios that they had seen in the past. The discussion was pretty lively at times.

Although Cobbler does not actually use Perl, many people working with Perl do some level of system administration tasks. Cobbler can help in those areas and allow us to get back to Perl programming.

We had 12 people attending this month. As always, we'd like to thank cPanel, Inc. for providing the meeting space and food for the group.
