bashtoni/timezone — version 1.0.0 Jul 17th 2015

Puppet Timezone Module

A very basic Puppet module to set the timezone properly. Works on RHEL/CentOS, Amazon Linux, SUSE, Debian, Ubuntu and Gentoo.

Requires >= Puppet 3.2.0 on Debian and Ubuntu because of a Puppet bug and the way timezone files have been laid out on disk. Works with Puppet 2.7+ on other distros.


In your manifest:

class { 'timezone':
  region   => 'Europe',
  locality => 'London',

Or you can simply include timezone and set the details via hiera:

timezone::region: 'Europe'
timezone::locality: 'London'
