apowers/basichost — version 0.1.3 Apr 18th 2013

Abandoned

This was my first module. I have since abandoned it in favor of several modules that do more specific things.

Description

Basic host configuration.

  • Network interface configuration
  • dhclient configuration
  • Common packages
  • /etc/skel files
  • Common directories like '/home'.

Compatibility

Paramaterized and hiera compatible.

Written for puppet 3.x, not tested with puppet 2.x

Supports Debian and FreeBSD with CentOS and others coming soon.

Notes

For non-static interfaces (default), this module will configure DHCP-client with a fallback lease for the current IP address of the host.

CARP, VLAN, and virtual interfaces are ignored.

Assigning a static address assumes that the current IP address of the system is correct and will be used in the dhclient and interfaces configuration.

Default route logic is very basic. Only the first default route in the routing table will be recognized.

Hiera YAML

  • String: $basichost::resolv_conf['domain']

  • String: $basichost::resolv_conf['search']

  • Array: $basichost::resolv_conf['nameservers']

  • Array: $basichost::directories

  • Array: $basichost::packages

  • Bool: $basichost::static_address[<interface_name>]

    basichost::resolv_conf: domain: '' search: '' nameservers:

    • ''

    • ''

      basichost::directories:

    • ''

      basichost::packages:

    • ''

      basichost::static_address: <interface_name>: <true|false>

TODO

  • CentOS support.
  • MS Windows support?
  • SmartOS support?
  • Even if all interfaces are "static", dhclient will still be started. That might be a problem.
