Module Description

The UVFS module installs UVFS, the userspace filesystem kit for Linux.


Beginning with UVFS

To install UVFS with the default options:

include '::uvfs'

To customize options, such as the install directory or the version to install, you must also pass the appropriate parameters:

class { '::uvfs':
  version     => '2.0.6',
  install_dir => '/opt/iw-tools',


Interactions for UVFS are all done via ::uvfs.

Install UVFS

To install an older version of UVFS in a non-default directory:

class { '::uvfs':
  version     => '2.0.6',
  install_dir => '/opt/iw-tools',



Public classes

  • uvfs: Installs UVFS

Private classes

  • uvfs::base::install: Installs OpenDeploy Base.
  • uvfs::base::dependencies: Installs package dependencies for UVFS.




Version of UVFS to install. Valid values are valid release numbers from SF. Default is 2.0.7.


Location, as a fully qualified path, on the filesystem to install UVFS.

Using install_dir => '/opt/iw-tools' will create the following structure:

    └── uvfs_2.0.7/
        └── <files installed>

Valid values are valid system paths. Defaults to /opt/iw-tools.


This module has been tested on:

  • RedHat Enterprise Linux 6, 7
  • CentOS 6, 7

Testing on other platforms is nonsensical as the vendor only supports the above systems
