Overview

Manage non-volatile network and route configuration.

Usage

Interface configuration

network_config { 'eth0':
  ensure  => 'present',
  family  => 'inet',
  method  => 'dhcp',
  onboot  => 'true',
  hotplug => 'true',
  options => {'pre-up' => 'sleep 2'},
}

network_config { 'lo':
  ensure => 'present',
  family => 'inet',
  method => 'loopback',
  onboot => 'true',
}

network_config { 'eth1':
  ensure    => 'present',
  family    => 'inet',
  ipaddress => '169.254.0.1',
  method    => 'static',
  netmask   => '255.255.0.0',
  onboot    => 'true',
}

Route configuration

Route resources should be named in CIDR notation. If not, they will not be properly mapped to existing routes and puppet will apply them on every run. Default routes should be named 'default'.

For Debian:

network_route { '172.17.67.0/24':
  ensure    => 'present',
  gateway   => '172.18.6.2',
  interface => 'vlan200',
  netmask   => '255.255.255.0',
  options   => 'table 200',
}

For RedHat Enterprise:

network_route { '172.17.67.0/24':
  ensure    => 'present',
  gateway   => '10.0.2.2',
  interface => 'eth0',
  netmask   => '255.255.255.0',
  network   => '172.17.67.0',
  options   => 'table 200',
}
network_route { 'default':
  ensure    => 'present',
  gateway   => '10.0.2.2',
  interface => 'eth0',
  netmask   => '0.0.0.0',
  network   => 'default'
}

Create resources on the fly with the puppet resource command:

root@debian-6:~# puppet resource network_config eth1 ensure=present family=inet method=static ipaddress=169.254.0.1 netmask=255.255.0.0
notice: /Network_config[eth1]/ensure: created
network_config { 'eth1':
  ensure    => 'present',
  family    => 'inet',
  ipaddress => '169.254.0.1',
  method    => 'static',
  netmask   => '255.255.0.0',
  onboot    => 'true',
}

# puppet resource network_route 23.23.42.0 ensure=present netmask=255.255.255.0 interface=eth0 gateway=192.168.1.1
notice: /Network_route[23.23.42.0]/ensure: created
network_route { '23.23.42.0':
  ensure    => 'present',
  gateway   => '192.168.1.1',
  interface => 'eth0',
  netmask   => '255.255.255.0',
  options   => 'table 200',
}

Dependencies

This module requires the FileMapper mixin, available at https://github.com/voxpupuli/puppet-filemapper. The network_config type requires the Boolean mixin, available at https://github.com/adrienthebo/puppet-boolean.

The debian routes provider requires the package ifupdown-extra. The network_config class requires the ipaddress gem, which needs to be installed on both the puppet master and the nodes. ifupdown-extra and ipaddress can be installed automatically using the network class. To use it, include it like so in your manifests:

include '::network'

This class also provides fine-grained control over which packages to install and how to install them. The documentation for the parameters exposed can be found here.

The ipaddress gem can also be installed manually with:

sudo gem install ipaddress --no-ri --no-rdoc

Note: you may also need to update your master's plugins (run on your puppet master):

puppet agent -t --noop

Or on puppet 3.8.7/4.x:

puppet plugin download
