vendortools puppet module

v0.0.1 - John Simpson, Jeff Palmer 2013-10-04

This module installs the appropriate packages and services to interact with the machine's hardware. It uses the "manufacturer" fact to choose one of several manufacturer-specific modules. If the hardware is not recognized, the module does nothing.

Apple - hardware::apple

Apple hardware is recognized, but the hardware::apple module currently doesn't do anything.

Dell - hardware::dell

  • Installs the Dell OSMA yum repositories (one applies to all hardware, the other is specific to each model number).
  • Installs several Dell packages.
  • Ensures that the "dataeng" service (part of Dell's storage management framework) is running.

HP - hardware::hp

  • Installs the HP Software Delivery Repository.
  • Installs several HP-specific packages.
  • Ensures that the "hp-health" service is running.
  • If the "hp-health" package is updated, the "hp-health" service is restarted.

IBM - hardware::ibm

IBM hardware is recognized, but the hardware::ibm module currently does not do anything.

VMWare - hardware::vmware

VMWare guests are recognized, but the hardware::vmware module currently does not do anything.
