1. Overview

Module to manage the puppet 'business layer'. Here you can define pools of configuration and associate it to profiles. This class will work exclusively with 'mtulio-profile' module that implements puppet 'implementation layer'. Each 'role' you can add one or more profiles.

For an better understanding, I have named each 'roles' as a 'pools of servers', each pool has an specific group of configurations[profiles]

For a example, if the node has an 'webserver role' with NGINX, the class can be called 'pool_dmz_nginx' and associate these profiles:

  • profiles::linux
  • profiles::nms::zabbix_agent
  • profiles::web::nginx

In this class you can be specific and detailed in what the business need.

2. Roles

  • server_linux : means a basic Linux server with the base Company configuration
  • pool_dmz_nginx : means a pools of Linux servers that has a base Linux Configuration plus NGINX

2.1 Class: server_linux


Profile to configure Linux system using its profile see module mtulio-profiles


Module 'mtulio-profiles'


See module description


  • Basic usage
class {'::roles::server_linux' : }
