Adding Windows servers to a Puppet instance can feel like a daunting task, even more so when you already have a large number of Linux servers in Puppet already. Learn how Walmart integrated their Windows servers into Puppet Enterprise. We’ll discuss not only why we chose Puppet over other tools, but why and how we still use tools like DSC, SCCM and GPOs. We’ll also go over the successes and pitfalls we had along the way in using Puppet on Windows, onboarding other teams, and evangelizing our team’s vision to others.
