PowerDNS module

Build Status

This is a module to manage PowerDNS with Puppet. The configuration is split into several files and put in /etc/powerdns/pdns.d. This makes it easy to read which configurations are currently modified.



include powerdns


Set configuration settings in a pdns.d directory (this assumes that you have include=/etc/powerdns/pdns.d in pdns.conf).

powerdns::config { 'cache-ttl':
  ensure => present,
  value  => 20,

Or, set IPv6 address:

powerdns::config { 'local-ipv6':
  ensure => present,
  value  => $::ipaddress6,


This will install the postgresql backend for powerdns:

class { 'powerdns::postgresql':
  ensure   => present,
  user     => 'powerdns',
  password => 'secret',
  host     => 'localhost',
  port     => '5432',
  dbname   => 'pdns',
  dnssec   => 'no',

The dnssec value can be either 'yes' or 'no'. Default is 'yes'..

To be able to use it without importing data and without hassle, make sure that Postgres is installed before the powerdns::postgresql class.


This will install the mysql backend for powerdns:

class { 'powerdns::mysql':
  ensure   => present,
  user     => 'powerdns',
  password => 'secret',
  host     => 'localhost',
  port     => '3306',
  dbname   => 'pdns',
  dnssec   => 'no',

The dnssec value can be either 'yes' or 'no'. Default is 'yes'.


gem install bundler
bundle install
bundle exec rake
