This module manages the IPv6 route advertisement daemon; rtadvd or radvd as befits your operating system.

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


Beginning with rtadvd

You need to enable advertisements on at least one interface to be useful with something like:

class { '::rtadvd':
  interfaces => {
    'em0' => {},


Enable route advertisements on an interface, setting the other and managed flags as well as managing the IPv6 forwarding sysctl by other means:

class { '::rtadvd':
  manage_sysctl => false,

::rtadvd::interface { 'ens32':
  other_configuration   => true,
  managed_configuration => true,
