Set solaris driver configuration with puppet (kernel tuning). This module uses the ndd tool to get/set settings and update as required


solaris_ndd { "/dev/ip->ip_forward_src_routed":
  value => 0,

Each parameter is handled as a different Puppet resource. The title specifies the kernel driver and the parameter, delimited by -> and the puppet code translates the supplied title and value into the correct ndd invocation. Eg, the example above becomes:

ndd -set /dev/ip ip_forward_src_routed 0

The call to ndd -set is protected by a corresponding call to ndd -get to provide idempotence.


Defined types
