Description

This module installs and configures the CrashPlan backup service. Currently works on Linux (tested on CentOS 7.3 with Puppet 4.9, should work for older versions and other distros)

Setup

No special setup should be required.

Beginning with crashplan

include crashplan

Usage

You can specify the URL that the module downloads CrashPlan from by passing the crashplan_source parameter, like so:

class {crashplan:
  crashplan_source => 'http://some_url',
}

You can also specify the port that the CrashPlan service will listen to, as well as the GUID that desktop clients must use to connect (for headless installs):

class {crashplan:
  server_port => '4300',
  auth_guid => '6690f1b9-e3b7-444e-bfd1-9afd06bd896c',
}

See https://support.code42.com/CrashPlan/4/Configuring/Using_CrashPlan_On_A_Headless_Computer for more information on how to configure your desktop client to connect to a headless install.

Reference

Parameters

crashplan_source: String, specifies the URL to download CrashPlan from. server_port: String, specifies the port to listen on. auth_guid: String, specifies the GUID used to connect the desktop client to the service.

crashplan::install

Downloads, extracts, and installs the CrashPlan software.

crashplan::configure

Limitations

Should be compatible with any Linux distribution CrashPlan supports. Tested on CentOS 7.3 with Puppet 4.9, but should be compatible with older Puppet versions as well.
