USAGE - Basic management

  • Install xinetd with default settings

      class { "xinetd": }
    
  • Disable xinetd service.

      class { "xinetd":
        disable => true
      }
    
  • Disable xinetd service at boot time, but don't stop if is running.

      class { "xinetd":
        disableboot => true
      }
    
  • Remove xinetd package

      class { "xinetd":
        absent => true
      }
    
  • Enable auditing without without making changes on existing xinetd configuration files

      class { "xinetd":
        audit_only => true
      }
    

USAGE - Overrides and Customizations

  • Use custom sources for main config file

      class { "xinetd":
        source => [ "puppet:///modules/lab42/xinetd/xinetd.conf-${hostname}" , "puppet:///modules/lab42/xinetd/xinetd.conf" ], 
      }
    
  • Use custom source directory for the whole configuration dir

      class { "xinetd":
        source_dir       => "puppet:///modules/lab42/xinetd/conf/",
        source_dir_purge => false, # Set to true to purge any existing file not present in $source_dir
      }
    
  • Use custom template for main config file

      class { "xinetd":
        template => "example42/xinetd/xinetd.conf.erb",      
      }
    
  • Define custom options that can be used in a custom template without the need to add parameters to the xinetd class

      class { "xinetd":
        template => "example42/xinetd/xinetd.conf.erb",    
        options  => {
          'LogLevel' => 'INFO',

      }

      }
    
  • Activate puppi and use a custom puppi_helper template (to be provided separately with a puppi::helper define ) to customize the output of puppi commands

        puppi        => true,
        puppi_helper => "myhelper", 
      }
    
  • Activate automatic monitoring (recommended, but disabled by default) This option requires the usage of Example42 monitor and relevant monitor tools modules

      class { "xinetd":
        monitor      => true,
        monitor_tool => [ "nagios" , "monit" , "munin" ],
      }

        firewall      => true,
