Description Benjamin Chardi 2014-07-25 12:23:46 UTC
Description of problem:

We are building a Satellite6 HA environment for a customer that is going to manage around 8k RHEL servers. Our setting is running providing capsule load balanced services (puppetmaster + yum repos) to clients. In that scenario if one capsule goes down, the client connect to another capsule member of the cluster and the service is provided.

Puppet applies on our clients are done through running puppetruns from Foreman, an at this point this feature is not in HA.

In order to provide HA for puppetruns executed from Foreman  (WEB or API) it will be very useful if Foreman is able to assing a list of capsules (instead of just one capsule as now) to a puppet client in order to run puppetruns on that client through the capsule from Foreman.

In the actual setting just one capsule can be assigned to one host, in that case if that capsule is down the puppetrun will fail.

If Foreman can is able to try in failover fashion puppetruns through a list of capsules then HA for puppetruns will be archived.

Just to clarify, "puppetruns" -> "puppet runs triggered through the smart proxy"

Thank you for your interest in Satellite 6. We have evaluated this request, and we do not expect this to be implemented in product in the forseeable future. We are therefore closing this out as WONTFIX. If you have any concerns about this, please feel free to contact Rich Jerrido or Bryan Kearney. Thank you.
