Automated deployment and configuration?

Hi all,

Are there any articles on automated deployment and configuration of an Alfresco server?  I've searched but found very little out there…

I (ideally) want to be able to do all of the following in a reproducible, scripted way:
  • Build and deploy Alfresco WAR and customisations (content models, custom actions, scheduled actions, webscripts, workflows, Share customisations) - this is the 'easy' bit as it is all static files that Ant can put together.

  • Create groups, and users, and assign users to groups

  • Create specific folders, and add rules (and their actions) to those folders

  • Set permissions on folders and content

  • Import specific content and metadata into the repository (i.e. load content, set types and aspects, set properties and associations)
The goal is to be able to deploy and configure a test VM from scratch in a matter of minutes, then (eventually) reproduce exactly the same setup into production.

Any pointers, please?
