If you want puppet I'd start with https://github.com/purpleidea/puppet-ipa

As for enrolling a slew of systems, it depends on whether they are new
or to-be-deployed. You can generate an OTP for the clients to avoid
having to pass around admin-level credentials, for example. You can do
this for existing or new, but it can be easier on new systems as the OTP
can be passed in during kickstart.
