Australia-ATLAS has been running Puppet for all infrastructure and Grid nodes since 2012. With the release of Puppet 4, and the move to Centos 7, we decided to rejig our Puppet configuration using what we've learnt in 4 years, and best practice methodologies. This talk will describe the problems we had with the old Puppet config, the decisions we made constructing the new system, and how the new system makes configuration management much easier.
