skoef/jails — version 0.1.0 Aug 5th 2014


Manage FreeBSD Jails with puppet.

Simple implementation

All parameters from jail(8) are applicable to either the class defaults or to any jail.

class { 'jails':
  defaults => {
    'interface'   => 'em0',
    'allow_mount' => true,
    'exec_start'  => '/bin/sh /etc/rc',
    'exec_stop'   => '/bin/sh /etc/rc.shutdown',
    'exec_clean'  => true,
    'mount_devfs' => true,

jails::jail { 'webserver0':
  path          => '/jails/webserver0',
  ip4_addr      => '',
  host_hostname => '',

Jails can be easily managed from Hiera as well:

    path:          '/jails/webserver0'
    ip4_addr:      ''
    host_hostname: ''
