##Overview

This is a module that will manage and install the NSClient on Windows servers from the official NSClient site.

Build Status

##Module Description Module that will install the NSClient on windows servers to be able to interact with Nagios and Icinga. It will also manage the list of hosts that the server can communicate with.

##Setup

###What nsclient affects

  • Installs a new package
  • Creates a new windows service

###Beginning with nsclient

Usage

To install nsclient with defaults:

include 'nsclient'

To install a different version:

class { 'nsclient':
  package_source_location => 'http://myhost.com',
  package_name            => 'NSClient++ (Win32)'
  package_source          => '0.3.1.msi'
}

In order to configure the nagios hosts to communicate with:

class { 'nsclient':
  allowed_hosts => ['10.21.0.0/22','10.21.4.0/22'],
}

in order to use proxy for downloading the package

class { 'nsclient':
  proxy_url => 'http://proxy.domain.local:8080',
}

##Usage

###Classes and Defined Types

####Class: nsclient One of the primary classes of the nsclient module. This class will install the nsclient binaries

Parameters within nsclient: #####allowed_hosts Array of hosts that your client can communicate with. You can use netmasks (/ syntax) or * to create ranges.

#####service_state Whether you want to nsclient service to start up. Defaults to running

#####service_enable Whether you want to nsclient service to start up at boot. Defaults to true

#####package_source_location This is the default site to download your package from (e.g. http://files.nsclient.org/stable)

#####package_source This is the source name of the package to be downloaded

#####package_name This is name of the package to download (e.g. NSCP-0.4.1.101-x64.msi)

#####download_destination This is the folder to where we need to download the NSCP Installer. Package cannot take a remote file source Because of Windows, we need to set this to be a top level directory (e.g. c:\temp) or we would need to recursively check the file path.

#####proxy_url Specify a proxy url if needed for downloading the package
