Documentation

example42/yum — version 2.1.29 Mar 27th 2018

Puppet module: yum

This is a Puppet module that manages Yum repositories for Centos RedHat and Scientific Linux

Made by Alessandro Franceschi / Lab42

Inspired by the Yum Immerda module: https://git.puppet.immerda.ch

Official site: http://www.example42.com

Official git repository: http://github.com/example42/puppet-yum

Released under the terms of Apache 2 License.

This module requires functions provided by the Example42 Puppi module.

USAGE

  • Just leave the default options: Automatic detection of Operating System (RedHat, Centos, Scientific supported) Epel repo installation, keeping of local yum files, automatic updates disabled.

      class { 'yum':
      }
    
  • Enable automatic updates via cron (updatesd is supported only on 5)

      class { 'yum':
        update => 'cron',
      }
    
  • Purge local /etc/yum.repos.d/ and enforce its contents only via a custom source

      class { 'yum':
        source_repo_dir => 'puppet:///modules/example42/yum/conf/',
        clean_repos     => true,
      }
    
  • Enable EPEL and PuppetLabs repos

      class { 'yum':
        extrarepo => [ 'epel' , 'puppetlabs' ],
      }
    
  • Do not include any extra repo (By default EPEL is added)

      class { 'yum':
        extrarepo => '' ,
      }
    
  • Automatically copy in /etc/pki/rpm-gpg all the rpm-gpg keys known by the yum module (this was the "old" and intrusive behaviour, now each rpm-gpg key may be individually provided by the yum::manages_repos' gpgkey_source parameter)

      class { 'yum':
        install_all_keys => true ,
      }
    
  • Include a selected extra repo

      include yum::repo::puppetlabs
    

USAGE - Overrides and Customizations

  • Enable auditing without without making changes on existing yum configuration files

      class { 'yum':
        audit_only => true
      }
    
  • Use custom sources for main config file

      class { 'yum':
        source => [ "puppet:///modules/lab42/yum/yum.conf-${hostname}" , "puppet:///modules/lab42/yum/yum.conf" ],
      }
    
  • Use custom source directory for the whole configuration dir

      class { 'yum':
        source_dir       => 'puppet:///modules/lab42/yum/conf/',
        source_dir_purge => false, # Set to true to purge any existing file not present in $source_dir
      }
    
  • Use custom template for main config file. Note that template and source arguments are alternative.

      class { 'yum':
        template => 'example42/yum/yum.conf.erb',
      }
    
  • Automatically include a custom subclass

      class { 'yum':
        my_class => 'yum::example42',
      }
    

USAGE - Example42 extensions management

  • Activate puppi (recommended, but disabled by default)

      class { 'yum':
        puppi    => true,
      }
    
  • Activate puppi and use a custom puppi_helper template (to be provided separately with a puppi::helper define ) to customize the output of puppi commands

      class { 'yum':
        puppi        => true,
        puppi_helper => 'myhelper',
      }
