I’m actually creating some agents and facts for MCollective running on Windows Server.
All agents are developped on WindowsXP machine and then tested and deployed on Windows Server 2003 and Windows Server 2008.
What I’m describing is surely not the best method to build a windows package… but it works and is scriptable (I.e. building it with Jenkins).

From my github repo you can download the builder scripts which contains a Rakefile and install_gems.bat.

setup script for all post installation operations
New version of RestMCO (2.0-5), more flexible using POST messages

To use it you just need to put ovirt.rv and ovirt.ddl file on your ovirt machine (where — (Read more)

A problem with big datacenter in the previous KermIT version was all widgets with classed served inside (for example puppet classes widget). If you want to reach a particular class or server you should look for it by hand (search in any folder to find your server). Now you can simply search the resource you need (folder or server name) and you will be pointed out to — (Read more)
