Allows custom parameters to be added to the puppet solaris service file

Module Description

Edit the puppet solaris configuration file using a file_line resource.
Currently just allows you to set ld_library_path.


What puppet_solaris_service affects

  • The solaris service file for puppet. Defaults to /lib/svc/method/pe-puppet but can be customised via the service_file parameter.


Setting a custom ld_library_path

puppet_solaris_service { "pe-puppet":
  ld_library_path => "/usr/local/lib",

Removing a custom ld_library_path

puppet_solaris_service{ "pe-puppet": }



Alter the main solaris service definition file


Tested with Puppet Enterprise 3.8.1. Will likely need to be altered for Puppet Enterprise 2015 support when this agent is available. Not supported by Puppet Labs. To obtain support, customers are advised to return to a stock configuration and reproduce issues before filing a support ticket.

Only for use on Solaris
