Puppet for Windows: Remote Execution


In this example, I am going to use Puppet to:

– Create a Windows user and add it to the RDP group.
– Add Web Server role.
– Install McAfee VSE8.8.

Following things need to done:

1) Install the Puppet agent in Windows, detailed instruction can be found here.

2) Create a batch script named customize.bat, and save it to the Puppet file folder.  (How to configure the Puppet file server can be found in my previous blog.)

@ECHO OFF

REM ‘Create user jchen’
ECHO Creating user jchen
NET USER jchen password /add /expires:never /passwordchg:no

REM ‘Add users to RDP group’
ECHO Adding users to RDP group
NET localgroup “Remote Desktop Users” jchen /add

REM ‘Add IIS
ECHO Adding IIS role
servermanagercmd -install Web-Server

REM ‘Install VSE’
ECHO Copying VSE installation file…
mkdir C:\VSEinstall
copy /y \\FILESHARE\share\VSEinstall\*.* “C:\VSEinstall\”
ECHO Done

ECHO Installing VSE…
cd “C:\VSEinstall\”
msiexec.exe /i vse880.msi /quiet
ECHO Done

3) Add the following scripts into the manifest file.

node “test01.sandbox.local”{
file { ‘c:\Windows\Temp\customize.bat’:
ensure => ‘file’,
mode => ‘0777’,
owner => ‘administrator’,
group => ‘users’,
source => “puppet:///files/customize.bat”,
}
exec { ‘customize’:
command => ‘C:/Windows/Temp/customize.bat > C:/Windows/Temp/customize_log.txt’,
path => $::path,
}
}

4) Run the  command to test it in Windows: C:\Program Files (x86)\Puppet Labs\Puppet\bin>puppet agent –t
