Project Code Project Code

Project Description

Project is about enhancement of Func based Packaging control module named 'yumcmd', to be written in python.This module will be able to install and remove packages on remote minions using the yum package manager.

e.g. we can run the following command to install package(s) with this module.

func call yumcmd install <package-name>.

and to remove the package the command would be

func call yumcmd remove <package-name>.

Ofcourse module would be able to install & remove the packages on more than one minion with the single command.

to install or remove the package on all minions in a domain the command would be..

func * call yumcmd install <package-name>.

func * call yumcmd remove <package-name>

There is lot of can be done to make yumcmd more powerful by adding functionality to deal it with groupinstall & groupremove etc.
