Overview

This module installs the EMC NetWorker backup client and/or server. It is assumed that the installation packages are available via a repository the client has access to. It also manages the servers file.

Setup

What networker affects

  • the lgtoclnt and lgtoman packages
  • the content in /nsr/res/servers
  • the service networker

Setup Requirements

An assumption is made that you have setup a private repository to hold the packages for installing the NetWorker client.

Beginning with networker

Once you have a repo setup all you have to do is include networker in your manifest somewhere. You can, optionally, set the servers that are allowd to access the client via a parameter or via the file backend to hiera.

Usage

Basic usage:

include networker

Set the servers allowed to access the client:

class { 'networker':
  servers => ['server1.example.com', 'server2.example.com'],
}

Pull the file representing /nsr/res/servers from hiera:

class { 'networker':
  servers_file   => 'hiera',
}
