After you set up your users and groups, the next thing you’ll want to do is configure the software running on your machines. In this webinar, you’ll get a taste of the many kinds of services and packages Puppet can manage on Windows. We’ll present some common use cases that will help you get some quick wins under your belt, including:

  • Managing Windows services (Windows Time, Disk Defragmenter, etc.)
  • Installing packages
  • Managing Windows maintenance tasks via WMI by executing arbitrary PowerShell code
  • Creating scheduled tasks in the Task Manager

Puppet can do a lot, but we always recommend starting small and building on your success. Make 2016 the year you banish manual configuration for good!
