After deciding Docker wasn’t a direction I wanted to head infrastructure wise I decided to pursue Ubuntu host… but I also wanted to update the infrastructure, so I decided to pursue an option like this:
- Ubuntu 16.o4
- PHP 7
- Non-local SQL
I’ve cited him once and I’ll do it again, Clayton Burlison has a great blog post on such a thing for Ubuntu 14.04 (less non-local db)which was the basic outline I used to move forward with this project.
Here is a video from PSU MacAdmins where I take a high level look at Munki, Docker and why you’d want to even try to get them to play nice with one another- or what better options for hosting your repo may be…
I love what the folks on the PSU MacAdmins team have been doing for the community, you can read more about them and the PSU MacAdmins conference here.
In my previous post I delved into getting a munki repo with ssl client-server cert protecting up and running on a docker host. You can read that here.
So the next step I wanted to get up and running next to it was the great tool Munkireport-PHP. More than likely if you are looking into docker as an option for a munki repo server you have some experience with munkireport-php as a reporting tool for your fleet. I am not endorsing this as the only way or even a preferred way- I just wanted to see what it looked like to get it up and running on a docker host- and it was super easy (in comparison to getting a munki repo configured and up and running).
I will be presenting the MacAdmins Conference at Penn State this summer with my good friend and colleague Sean Kaiser find more about him here. I will be heading up Life In A Post Xserve World and Sean 2 years after 1400+ computers in 3 weeks. Are we still nuts?. Here is a full list of topics and speakers. Looking forward to being inducted into a great community, and hope I can give just the slightest amount of wisdom back.
