Puppet Forge Build Status

Puppet module for managing the Foreman Smart Proxy

Installs and configures the Foreman Smart Proxy and services that it can interact with, e.g. DNS, DHCP and Puppet and TFTP.

Part of the Foreman installer:


Module version Proxy versions Notes
11.x 1.19 and newer See compatibility notes in its README for 1.19-1.21
10.x 1.19 - 1.21
5.x - 9.x 1.16 - 1.20 See compatibility notes in its README for 1.16-1.18
4.x 1.12 - 1.17 See compatibility notes in its README for 1.15+
3.x 1.11
2.x 1.5 - 1.10
1.x 1.4 and older

Starting version 1.22 the Puppet CA configuration is split depending on the provider. When using the module with 1.19 - 1.21, set puppetca_split_configs to false.


Minimal setup for Puppet/PuppetCA Smart Proxy

  puppet   => true,
  puppetca => true,
  tftp     => false,
  dhcp     => false,
  dns      => false,
  bmc      => false,
  realm    => false,

PowerDNS support

To use the PowerDNS plugin, the following variables need to be set on the main foreman_proxy class.

  dns          => true,
  dns_managed  => false,
  dns_provider => 'powerdns',

Then you also need to include foreman_proxy::plugin::dns::powerdns.

The powerdns plugin can optionally manage the database. If that's used, then the puppetlabs-mysql module must be added to the modulepath, otherwise it's not required.

Remote Execution User Management

This module can also be used to manage the ssh user on Foreman Remote Execution clients.

include foreman_proxy::plugin::remote_execution::ssh_user

The class will make use of the remote_execution_* host parameters available in the ENC data provided by Foreman.

It will manage the user, (by default foreman_ssh), install/update the ssh keys and manage the sudo rules (using saz/sudo if available in your environment).
