Mount Providers

This module is designed to provide additional functionality and support the native mount type inside of Puppet. The module provides two additional resource types not provided by Puppet core:

  • mountpoint
  • mounttab

Please see the output of puppet describe mountpoint and puppet describe mounttab for more information about the types and providers supplied by this module.


This module is installable from the Puppet Forge using the puppet module command.

$ puppet module install puppetlabs-mount_providers


Known Issues

This module will cause puppet describe to throw an error on Puppet versions between 2.6.8 and 2.6.14. The error is:

root@ubuntu-10:/etc/puppetlabs/puppet/modules# puppet describe mounttab
Could not run: Could not autoload /etc/puppetlabs/puppet/modules/puppetlabs-mount-providers/lib/puppet/type/mountpoint.rb:undefined method 'downcase' for nil:NilClass

Puppet has been patched to fix this bug. Please see Issue 13070 for details about when this fix has been released.
