2. SIMP 6.2.0-RC1

This release is known to work with:

  • RHEL 6.9 x86_64
  • RHEL 7.4 x86_64
  • CentOS 6.9 x86_64
  • CentOS 7.0 1708 x86_64

2.1. Breaking Changes


This release of SIMP is NOT backwards compatible with the 4.X and 5.X releases. Direct upgrades will not work!

At this point, do not expect any of our code moving forward to work with Puppet 3.

If you find any issues, please file bugs!

2.5. Removed Modules

2.5.1. pupmod-simp-mcollective and pupmod-simp-activemq

  • Puppetlabs support for MCollective has been effectively dropped, rendering the SIMP modules to support this, pupmod-simp-mcollective and pupmod-simp-activemq, non-functional.

2.9. Known Bugs

  • There is a bug in Facter 3 that causes it to segfault when printing large unsigned integers - FACT-1732
    • This may cause your run to crash if you run puppet agent -t --debug
  • The krb5 module may have issues in some cases, validation pending
  • The graphical switch user functionality does not work. We are working with the vendor to discover a solution
  • simp_options::selinux does not control if the simp selinux module is included when the simp scenario is used. The knockout prefix must also be used to remove it from the scenario maps. - SIMP-3858
