This module manages the IPv6 route advertisement daemon; rtadvd or radvd as befits your operating system.

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


Beginning with rtadvd

You need to enable advertisements on at least one interface to be useful with something like:

class { '::rtadvd':
  interfaces => {
    'em0' => {},


Enable route advertisements on an interface, setting the other and managed flags as well as managing the IPv6 forwarding sysctl by other means:

class { '::rtadvd':
  manage_sysctl => false,

::rtadvd::interface { 'ens32':
  other_configuration   => true,
  managed_configuration => true,


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


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

The module has been tested on:

  • OpenBSD 6.2/6.3
  • RedHat/CentOS Enterprise Linux 6/7


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

$ bundle exec rake test
$ PUPPET_INSTALL_TYPE=agent PUPPET_INSTALL_VERSION=x.y.z bundle exec rake beaker:<nodeset>
