Complex networks often need complex configurations and a lot of care and attention to individual severs. Using hiera, exported resources, custom facts, defined types, augeas and some forge modules we will explore the possibilities for having puppet take care of the complex configuration. We'll start with a few simple examples of exported resources and scale up to having hiera key off custom facts and having exported augeas resources build configurations.
