Description

This module installs and manages lldpd which provides LLDP advertisements to connected network devices.

RHEL/CentOS, Ubuntu, Debian and OpenBSD are supported using Puppet 4.6.0 or later.

Setup

Setup Requirements

On RHEL/CentOS platforms you will need to have access to the EPEL repository by using stahnma/epel or by other means.

Beginning with lldpd

In the very simplest case, applying the module will install and start the lldpd agent and enable LLDP advertisements:

include ::lldpd

Usage

If you want to also enable the Cisco Discovery Protocol, which comprises two versions, use the following:

class { '::lldpd':
  enable_cdpv1 => true,
  enable_cdpv2 => true,
}

Enabling the SNMP AgentX sub-agent can be done with:

class { '::lldpd':
  enable_snmp => true,
  snmp_socket => ['127.0.0.1', 705],
}

Reference

The reference documentation is generated with puppet-strings and the latest version of the documentation is hosted at https://bodgit.github.io/puppet-lldpd/.

Limitations

This module has been built on and tested against Puppet 4.6.0 and higher.

The module has been tested on:

  • RedHat Enterprise Linux 6/7
  • Ubuntu 14.04/16.04
  • Debian 7/8
  • OpenBSD 6.0/6.1

Development

The module has both rspec-puppet and beaker-rspec tests. Run them with:
