Overview

This is yet another Puppet module to manage a PowerDNS DNS server. It currently targets the latest stable release of Puppet, and should support both RedHat and Debian family distributions.

Beware that this module will recursively purge your distribution's default PowerDNS configuration.

Description

To use this module, use either an include-like or resource-like declaration:

# An include-like declaration for Hiera integration.
include ::powerdns

# A resource-like declaration for manual overrides.
class { '::powerdns': }

This module is intended to work with Puppet 4.x.

Configuration

All configuration can be handled either through Hiera or by arguments to the powerdns class.

All parameters specific to a backend can be supplied using the options parameter to the class.

Supported PowerDNS Backends

  • MySQL (gmysql)
  • PostgreSQL (gpgsql)
  • SQLite3 (gsqlite3)
  • LMDB (lmdb)
  • Pipe (pipe)
  • TinyDNS (tinydns)

PowerDNS with MySQL (using manifests)

# Install PowerDNS:
class { '::powerdns': }

# Load the MySQL backend:
class { '::powerdns::backend::gmysql':
  host     => '127.0.0.1',
  user     => 'username',
  password => 'password',
  dbname   => 'powerdns',
  port     => '3306',
  dnssec   => 'yes'
}

PowerDNS with PostgreSQL (using Hiera)

# In Hiera configuration:
classes:
  - 'powerdns'
  - 'powerdns::backend::gpgsql'

powerdns::backend::gpgsql::host:     '127.0.0.1'
powerdns::backend::gpgsql::user:     'username'
powerdns::backend::gpgsql::password: 'password'
powerdns::backend::gpgsql::dbname:   'powerdns'
powerdns::backend::gpgsql::port:     5432
powerdns::backend::gpgsql::dnssec:   'no'

Todo

  • Ensure PowerDNS works with SELinux on distributions that use it.
  • Consider supporting a chrooted installation.
  • Extend support to other distributions.
