This module manages NSD.

RHEL/CentOS and OpenBSD are supported using Puppet 4.6.0 or later.


Setup Requirements

On RHEL/CentOS platforms you will need to have access to the EPEL repository by using stahnma/epel or by other means.

Beginning with nsd

In the simplest case, configure NSD as a master with a single zone:

include ::nsd

::nsd::zone { '':
  source => 'puppet:///modules/example/',


Configure NSD listening on the primary interface only as a slave for a single zone protected with the given TSIG key:

include ::nsd

::nsd::key { 'example.':
  algorithm => 'hmac-sha256',
  secret    => '6z+8iKRIQrwN43TFfO/Rf2NHzpHIFVi6PsJ7dDESclc=',

::nsd::zone { '':
  allow_notify => [
    ['', 'example.'],
  request_xfr  => [
    ['AXFR', '', 'example.'],
