Overview

A puppet type and provider to manage the creation/deletion/updation of windows pagefiles using WMI via ruby's win32ole.

Module Description

The provider is capable of setting the initial size and maximum size for a windows page file or it can let the page file size be managed by the operating system.

Setup

Installation

The module can be installed directly from the Puppet Forge

 puppet module install ptierno-windowspagefile

Or you can clone this repo into your modulepath

 git clone https://github.com/ptierno/puppet-windowspagefile.git

Usage

Examples

Managing a page files size

 pagefile { 'c:\pagefile.sys':
   initialsize => 1024,
   maximumsize => 1024
 }

Letting windows manage the page files size

 pagefile { 'c:\pagefile.sys':
   systemmanaged => true
 }

Removing a page file

 pagefile { 'c:\pagefile.sys':
   ensure => absent
 }

If you leave out either initialsize or maximumsize if will use the value of the other

 # maximumsize will inherit the value of initialsize
 pagefile { 'c:\pagefile.sys':
   initialsize => 1024
 }

If you use this module to manage a pagefile (or more), it will automatically disable the Windows option to have the system automatically manage pagefiles for all drives. (different than system managed size for a single pagefile)

If you set all of your managed pagefiles ensure value to absent it will turn this feature back on.

Limitations

This provider has been tested on the following windows operating systems:

  • Windows Server 2008 R2
  • Windows Server 2012 R2
