thias/resolvconf — version 0.0.3 Jul 17th 2013



Manage /etc/resolv.conf with puppet.

  • resolvconf : Main class.

The idea is to be able to globally include the resolvconf class on all nodes. From there, hiera with puppet 3.x allows to start managing the /etc/resolv.conf file's content in a very flexible way.


In site.pp :


In hieradata somewhere :

  - '::resolvconf'
resolvconf::header: ''
  - ''
  - ''
  - ''
  - ''
  - ''

This way, only nodes where the Hiera values apply get their /etc/resolv.conf file modified by Puppet.
