Overview

This module installs the client part of EMC Networker backup software on Linux servers.

You will need to separately configure a suitable package repository to provide the lgtoclnt package.

Usage

Usage is straightforward. The only mandatory parameter is server. Only set the service and connections ports if your site is configured differently from the defaults shown below.

class { networker:
  service_ports    => '7937-7999',
  connection_ports => '10001-30000',
  server           => 'server.example.com'
  nsr_file         => 'puppet:///modules/networker/dotnsr'
}

Unless an alternative is specified, the default the dotnsr file is deployed.

Limitations

Tested on CentOS, may work on other platforms.

Development

Pull requests are gratefully received.

Testing

Beaker acceptance tests can be run using bundle exec rake beaker. You will have to set a few site specific environment variables to make the tests useful.

REPO: A URL to a yum repo where the Networker packages can be found

Example:

BEAKER_destroy=no NSRSRV=anubis.bris.ac.uk REPO='http://packages.example.com/centos/$releasever/$basearch' bundle exec rake beaker
