To be fair - that’s not a matter of the modules but additional configuration steps being done manually. IIRC the puppet modules don’t setup or upgrade your database schema as well.

The playbook also installs Icinga2 on another "monitored" boxs and configures it in the master. I really like Icinga and thought it was a good opportunity to share something with the community, so I cleaned up the code and pushed it to github:

It might be a good idea to

1) patch icinga2-ansible allowing its usage
2) incorporate the module into a dedicated vagrant box at github.com/icinga/icinga-vagrant

In terms of 1) it is a good idea to talk with Valentino being the maintainer of the Ansible playbook. In terms of 2), it’s me but I’ll happily grant git access to you willing to maintain the boxes and becoming a member of the packages & tools team on Icinga :)


PS: I’d personally go for the master deploying the configuration to the satellite until the service auto-discovery is re-evaluated in 2016.
