Overview

This module manages the ISC DHCP daemon.

Module Description

This module installs and runs the ISC DHCP daemon. This module configures the daemon by building up the dhcpd.conf file with via defined resources.

Setup

What dhcpd affects

The dhcpd module will install the appropriate packages for RedHat and Debian distributions. Furthermore, it constructs the configuration files required for the daemon according to corresponding resources. It also controls the execution of the appropriate daemon services.

Setup Requirements

This module requires the puppetlabs/stdlib and puppetlabs/concat modules.

Beginning with dhcpd

Simply including this module will install and execute the dhcpd service on your host, however it will not be functional without a subnet definition.

Usage

A sample configuration illustrates the basic usage of this module.

class { 'dhcpd':
    ensure              => installed,
    service             => running,
    enable              => true,
    domain              => 'dhcp.example.com',
    search              => [ 'dhcp.example.com', 'example.com', ],
    ddns_updates        => true,
    ddns_update_style   => 'interim',
    ddns_client_updates => 'ignore',
}

dhcpd::key { 'example.org':
    algorithm => 'hmac-md5',
    secret    => 'notrevealed==',
}

dhcpd::zone { 'dhcp.example.com':
    domain     => 'dhcp.example.com.',
    nameserver => 'ns.example.com',
    key        => 'example.org',
}

dhcpd::subnet { 'eth0':
    network       => '192.168.1.0',
    netmask       => '255.255.255.0',
    authoritative => true,
    range         => '192.168.1.100 192.168.1.250',
    broadcast     => '192.168.1.255',
    routers       => '192.168.1.1',
    nameservers   => [ 'ns.example.com', '8.8.8.8', '8.8.4.4', ],
    lease_default => 3600,
