2.8 quality score

We run a couple of automated
scans to help you access a
module's quality. Each module is
given a score based on how well
the author has formatted their
code and documentation and
modules are also checked for
malware using VirusTotal.

Please note, the information below
is for guidance only and neither of
these methods should be considered
an endorsement by Puppet.

cnafsd/bdii — version 1.3.2 Jul 13th 2020



Manage the BDII grid information system.

Documentation for BDII is available here

To use a bdii resource, it should be enough to simply:

include bdii

To manage site bdii, it is expected that hiera should be used to configure the sitebdii parameters, however it is in theory possible to modify the defaults in params.pp if this is more convenient.

Class Parameters to bdii

  • manage_firewall Defaults to true.
  • log_level defaults to DEBUG
  • port defaults to 2170
  • user defaults ldap
  • slapdconf defaults to /etc/bdii/bdii/bdii-slapd.conf
  • deletedelay defaults to 0 (no delay)
  • $selinux defaults to true


Previously all configurations could be specified by setting e.g. bdii::params::site_name within hiera. These are all now class parameters so this one should be bdii::site_name for instance. Eventually support for settings via the params.pp will be removed.
