5.0 quality score

We run a couple of automated
scans to help you access a
module's quality. Each module is
given a score based on how well
the author has formatted their
code and documentation and
modules are also checked for
malware using VirusTotal.

Please note, the information below
is for guidance only and neither of
these methods should be considered
an endorsement by Puppet.

bashtoni/timezone — version 1.0.0 Jul 17th 2015

Puppet Timezone Module

A very basic Puppet module to set the timezone properly. Works on RHEL/CentOS, Amazon Linux, SUSE, Debian, Ubuntu and Gentoo.

Requires >= Puppet 3.2.0 on Debian and Ubuntu because of a Puppet bug and the way timezone files have been laid out on disk. Works with Puppet 2.7+ on other distros.


In your manifest:

class { 'timezone':
  region   => 'Europe',
  locality => 'London',

Or you can simply include timezone and set the details via hiera:

timezone::region: 'Europe'
timezone::locality: 'London'
