Running provyΒΆ

provy comes with a console runner. It’s the same one we used in the Getting started tutorial.

The console runner supports some options. For more information you can use the –help command. You should see output like the following:

$ provy --help
Usage: [options]

  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  -s SERVER, --server=SERVER
                        Servers to provision with the specified role. This is
                        a recursive     option.
  -p PASSWORD, --password=PASSWORD
                        Password to use for authentication with servers.
                        If passwords differ from server to server this does
                        not work.

The option you are most likely to use is the server option. It tells provy what servers you want provisioned.

As we saw in the provyfile and Runtime Arguments section, we can also supply AskFor arguments when running provy.

All arguments must take the form of key=value, with no spaces. The key must be exactly the same as the one in the AskFor definition, case-sensitive.
