Documentation

chrekh/hosts — version 4.1.0 Apr 29th 2023

hosts

A template-based module to manage /etc/hosts. The main goal for this module is to add entries for localhost and primary address based on existing ip-adresses on existing interfaces. as reported by structured fact networking[]. Tested by me on Gentoo, SLES, RedHat, and OS X. But it should work or any Linux and Unix-like OS.

This module unconditionally overwrites your hosts file.

Usage

class { 'hosts': }

Hiera example

hosts::one_primary_ipv4: false
hosts::one_primary_ipv6: false
hosts::entries:
  '::2':
    - 'localhost2'
  'Foocluster nodes':
    '2001:db8:abba::1':
      - 'node1.example.org'
      - 'node1'
    '2001:db8:abba::2':
      - 'node2.example.org'
      - 'node2'
