This is a SIMP module

This module is a component of the System Integrity Management Platform, a compliance-management framework built on Puppet.

If you find any issues, they can be submitted to our JIRA.

Please read our Contribution Guide and visit our developer wiki.

Module Description

This class installed the command line McAfee anti-virus scanner and configures updates to be pulled from rsync.


What simp mcafee affects

simp/mcafee will install McAfee, create an /opt/mcafee_dat directory and use simp/rsync to control the /opt/mcafee_dat contents. simp/rsync will use the data contained in /srv/rsync/mcafee on the Puppet Master by default.

Setup Requirements

simp/mcafee requires the simp/simplib and simp/rsync modules.


To use this module, just include it as a class in hiera or manifests.


Public Classes

  • rsync_server: The rsync server used in the SIMP environment. Valid Options: An IP Address or FQDN.

  • rsync_timeout: The timeout in seconds to transfer the data. Valid Options: Integer. Default: '2'


This module is only designed to work in RHEL or CentOS 6 and 7. Any other operating systems have not been tested and results cannot be guaranteed.
