cobbler 2 dot 6 on ubuntu precise

I’ve recently went and updated a bunch of things that I’m working with, and one of the things I decided to refresh was an automated installer. In the past I’ve relied on either hand rolled configurations or more recently Ubuntu MAAS. This time I decided to give Cobbler a try on my Ubuntu Precise installations.

Given Cobbler is pretty (or was) RHEL specific, I was not too disappointed with the Debian packaging. Most things worked, I did have to correct the dnsmasq and tftpd templates but it mostly worked. I’ve a smallish salt formula for setting up said system at

It’s pretty nice that Cobbler is able to provision KVM or XEN based virtual machines as well as the usual bare metal systems.
