Getting started on Windows
Welcome to Puppet Enterprise (PE) getting started for Windows users. These pages demonstrate some essential tasks to start using PE, either to help you set up an initial installation for actual deployment, or as a way for you to try out some fundamentals of configuration management.
You'll walk through the setup of a monolithic installation: a PE deployment in which the Puppet master, the PE console, and PuppetDB are all installed on one node. The various sections of the getting started guide show you how to automate some basic tasks that sysadmins regularly perform.
The exercises build on each other to lay in some foundational configuration tasks. Work through them in the order presented. See the prerequisite sections in each page to ensure you have the correct setup to perform the steps as they're provided.
