Description

This module sets up DNS client config, including /etc/resolv.conf and /etc/host.conf.

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 may be submitted to our bug tracker.

This module is optimally designed for use within a larger SIMP ecosystem, but it can be used independently:

  • When included within the SIMP ecosystem, security compliance settings will be managed from the Puppet server.

Setup

What resolv affects

  • /etc/resolv.conf
  • /etc/host.conf
  • Network Manager

Beginning with resolv

Include the class on any systems you want to manage.

Usage

Include the class from hiera:

---
classes:
  - ::resolv

File contents can be tweaked by adding more hieradata:

---
resolv::rotate: false
resolv::host_conf::multi: true

nmcli

Managing device DNS entries can be done via nmcli accordingly:

---
resolv::use_nmcli: true
resolv::nmcli_connection_name: 'System eth0'
resolv::nmcli_ignore_auto_dns: true
resolv::nmcli_auto_reapply_device: true

Reference

Please refer to the REFERENCE.md.
