Module description

This module manages rc.local entries in /etc/rc.local file directory.

Setup

This module uses Data Types from puppetlabs-stdlib!

Usage

To only manage the content of rc.local file:

class { 'rclocal':
  # config_file - OS specific, set via hiera data in module
  # config_dir  - OS specific, set via hiera data in module
  # template    - name a template to fill rc.local file, defaults to module template
  # scripts     - a hash of rc.local.d snippets to add
}

or include rclocal

Main usage is via a defined resource tye:

rclocal::script { 'name':
  ensure   => 'present',
  content  => "content for rc_local snippet\n",
  priority => '44',
  autoexec => true,
}

Or by defining hiera data for main class scripts parameter:

---
rclocal::scripts:
  'name':
    'ensure': 'present'
    'content': "content for rc_local snippet\n"
    'priority': '44'
    'autoexec': true

and then consume the data in your profile:

lookup('rclocal::scripts').each |$key, $params| {
  rclocal::script { $key:
    * => $params,
  }
}

Parameters

  • ensure: set to 'present' or 'absent'
  • content: the content you want to add
  • priority: manages the order where the content appears
  • autoexec: true or false - should puppet execute the code snippet from content - if set to false code will get executed on next reboot
