Module Description

This module targets the configuration of network interfaces on supported operating systems.

Setup

What simp-network affects

This module affects the creation and management of various types of network devices on RHEL-compatible operating systems.

Usage

Basic Usage

Set global networking parameters

include network::global

Manage a network interface

network::eth { 'eth0':
  macaddr => $facts['macaddress_eth0']
}

Set up a bridge bound to an interface

network::eth { 'eth0':
  bridge  => 'br0',
  macaddr => $facts['macaddress_eth0']
}

network::eth { 'br0':
  net_type  => 'Bridge',
  onboot    => true,
  macaddr   => $facts['macaddress_eth0'],
  ipaddr    => pick($facts['ipaddress_eth0'], $facts['ipaddress_br0']),
  gateway   => $facts['defaultgateway'],
  broadcase => $facts['netmask_eth0'],
  require   => Network::Eth['eth0']
}

Limitations

This module is designed to work only with RHEL-compatible operating systems.

Development

Please read our [Contribution Guide] (https://simp.readthedocs.io/en/stable/contributors_guide/index.html).

Unit tests

Unit tests, written in rspec-puppet can be run by calling:

bundle exec rake spec

Acceptance tests

To run the system tests, you need Vagrant installed. Then, run:

bundle exec rake beaker:suites

Some environment variables may be useful:

BEAKER_debug=true
BEAKER_provision=no
BEAKER_destroy=no
BEAKER_use_fixtures_dir_for_modules=yes
  • BEAKER_debug: show the commands being run on the STU and their output.
  • BEAKER_destroy=no: prevent the machine destruction after the tests finish so you can inspect the state.
  • BEAKER_provision=no: prevent the machine from being recreated. This can save a lot of time while you're writing the tests.
  • BEAKER_use_fixtures_dir_for_modules=yes: cause all module dependencies to be loaded from the spec/fixtures/modules directory, based on the contents of .fixtures.yml. The contents of this directory are usually populated by bundle exec rake spec_prep. This can be used to run acceptance tests to run on isolated networks.
