Running plans in PE

Use the orchestrator to set up jobs in the console or on the command line and run plans across systems in your infrastructure.

Running a plan does not update your Puppet configuration. If you run a plan that changes the state of a resource that Puppet is managing (such as upgrading a service or package), a subsequent Puppet run changes the state of that resource back to what is defined in your Puppet configuration.

Note: If you have set up compilers and you want to use plans, you must either set primary_uris or server_list on agents to point to your compilers. This setting is described in the section on configuring compilers for orchestrator scale.
