andulla/ehc_role — version 0.0.2 Apr 23rd 2016



This module was developed to integrate into EMC EHC environments with vRealize Automation Center and vRO . It adds a custom fact with the role of the node that can be used to classify the node within your puppet environment.

Module Description

It reads out the file /etc/myrole on Linux nodes and starts script %windir%\myrole.cmd on Windows nodes to save the current role into a new custom fact myrole

What fehc_role affects

It will add new custom fact to all nodes if pluginsync is enabled.

Setup Requirements OPTIONAL

This custom fact was developed to integrate with EHC vRO workflows.


This module is currently limited to Linux and Windows nodes only.
