Puppet has been in use by the Fermilab Experiments Facilities department to support computing for a variety of experiments for the last several years.  This presentation will discuss our experience deploying, refining, and upgrading Puppet to scale to thousands of systems, across different experiments, servers, batch nodes, and workstations.  This presentation will describe our efforts to build an understandable and maintainable Puppet repository, that is flexible and usable by multiple administrators.
