The zfs_core module is used to manage both zfs and zpool resources. Though This module is only tested on Solaris machines, it should also work on any machine that has zfs or zpool resources.


To create a zpool resource with the name tstpool that uses the disk /ztstpool/dsk, use the following code:

zpool { 'tstpool':
  ensure => present,
  disk => '/ztstpool/dsk',

To create a zfs resource based on the pool created above, use the following code:

zfs { 'tstpool/tstfs':
  ensure => present,


Please see the documentation for the zfs_core and zpool_core modules.

This module is documented using Puppet Strings.

For a quick primer on how Strings works, please see this blog post or the for Puppet Strings.

To generate documentation locally, run the following command:

bundle install
bundle exec puppet strings generate ./lib/**/*.rb

This command will create a browsable \_index.html file in the doc directory. The references available here are all generated from YARD-style comments embedded in the code base. When any development happens on this module, the impacted documentation should also be updated.


This module is only available on platforms that have both zfs and zpool available.


Puppet Labs modules on the Puppet Forge are open projects, and community contributions are essential for keeping them great. We can't access the huge number of platforms and myriad of hardware, software, and deployment configurations that Puppet is intended to serve.

We want to keep it as easy as possible to contribute changes so that our modules work in your environment. There are a few guidelines that we need contributors to follow so that we can have a chance of keeping on top of things.

For more information, see our module contribution guide.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
