puppetfinland/windows_snmp — version 0.3.1 Jun 28th 2018


A Puppet module for configuring SNMP (client) feature on Windows and opening up holes in to the Windows Firewall.


Typical usage:

class { '::windows_snmp':
  community           => 'public',
  syscontact          => '',
  permitted_managers  => '',
  allow_address_ipv4  => [ '', '' ],
  syslocation         => 'Pleasanton, CA',

The $permitted_managers parameter can take either and IP address or a hostname. Windows itself supports multiple values for the permitted_managers registry key, but this module currently only supports defining one.

The $allow_address_ipv4 parameter gets passed to puppet/windows_firewall and from there to the "netsh advfirewall" command. It can take either a single IP/network as a string, or multiple as an array of strings. Firewall management can be turned off by setting $manage_packetfilter to false.
