## Assumptions
Before you can run this, a few things are assumed:
- You have a clean, minimal Ubuntu 14.04 host up and running
- You have a clean, minimal Debian 8 host up and running
- You have a user account with password-less SSH access to the machine
- You have sudo privileges on the remote host
- You have created a `hosts` file with something like:

## Testing in a VM (KVM)
A simple way to test locally in a virtual machine using libvirt + KVM:
$ sudo virt-install -n web01 -r 1024 --vcpus 2 \
-l \
--os-type=linux --os-variant=ubuntusaucy \
--disk /var/lib/libvirt/images/web01.qcow2,device=disk,bus=virtio,format=qcow2,size=40 \
--vnc --cpuset=1,2 -x "auto=true priority=critical url="
This boots from a network Ubuntu mirror, then uses a preseed to automate the OS installation.
## Testing in Vagrant
Not as simple as on GNU/Linux with KVM, but still easy:
$ vagrant up
A new VirtualBox VM will come up with the IP ``.
