Information about automaIT
automaIT can be used for automated software installations. It is as felxible and universal as shell scripts but its additional features make automation much more easier and consistently in complex environments.
Versioning the automation code ensures to always use the right code version for existing software installations as well as one automation component can be used to install different versions of a software product.
Dependencies ensure that required software components have been installed before. They also avoid removing software components which are still used and needed by other existing installations.
Traceability makes bug fixing your automation much more easier. All automated actions on remote hosts are logged centralized and with all their results and messages. Additionally you can check your installed environment and the used configuration parameters at any time.
Access Management ensures a detailed definition of users and access rights. For example application server admins may install and configure their middleware and bind it to existing databases but may not change or remove databases which are maintained by the database administrators.

Run a container
The container contains an instance of the agent for the automaIT server. It can be used to provision directly into a running container based on this image. Doing so the agent container must be linked to the server container or accessible through a port on the docker host:
docker run --name automait-agent-1 -p 127.0.0.1:9999:9999 -d novatec/automait-agent:latest
Once started the automaIT server and the agent container, the agent has to be referenced as a new physical host in the automaIT server.
