A lightweight puppet module for managing fstab mounts and server exports

Module Description

This puppet module will allow the managment of nfs and cifs mounts and exports. It does this by backing on to the puppet Mount type, it will also ensure that a mount point in the filesystem already exists.

Setup

  • Optionally installs nfs and cifs client software
  • Manages the mount points
  • Manages /etc/exports

Usage

class { 'fstab' : }

fstab::mount { '/mountPoint':
  ensure  => 'mounted',

  options => 'ro,hard,rsize=32768,wsize=32768,nfsvers=3',
  fstype  => 'nfs',
}

Mount to a CIFS share using username and password

class { 'fstab':
  manage_cifs => true, # manage the cifs packages
}

$credentials = '/home/user/mount.smb'

fstab::mount { '/mountPoint':
  ensure           => 'mounted',
  device           => '//windows-server/sharedFolder',
  credentials_file => $credentials,
  username         => 'msusername',
  password         => 'mspassword',
  options          => "credentials=${credentials},sec=ntlm,uid=owner,gid=group,iocharset=utf-8",

}
