given a score based on how well
the author has formatted their
code and documentation and
modules are also checked for
malware using VirusTotal.

Description

Setup

What aix_tidy affects

The module necessarily touches many parts of the system in order to perform the required changes. Consult the module source code in order to understand what is going on under the hood.

Since aix_tidy locks down critical security settings, its vital that user's understand how and why it works to prevent lockout or misconfiguration scenarios.

Usage

Most classes will need to be loaded using the class resource syntax in order to pass the appropriate class defaults, eg:

class { "foo:bar":
  param1 => "value1",
  param2 => "value2",
}

Parameters, where available, are documented inside the individual classes. See Reference section.

Reference

Reference documentation is generated directly from source code using puppet-strings. You may regenerate the documentation by running:

bundle exec puppet strings

Or you may view the current generated documentation.

The documentation is no substitute for reading and understanding the module source code, and all users should ensure they are familiar and comfortable with the operations this module performs before using it.

Limitations

  • AIX 6.1/7.1 only

Development

PRs accepted :)

Testing

This module supports testing using PDQTest.

Test can be executed with:

bundle install
bundle exec pdqtest all

See .travis.yml for a working CI example
