Chroot is defined on config file.

The struct of directories and files are:

  • /etc/named.conf -> /var/named/chroot/etc/named.conf : Main config file.
  • /etc/named/acl.conf -> /var/named/chroot/etc/named/acl.conf : Access control list.
  • /etc/named/key.conf -> /var/named/chroot/etc/named/key.conf : Keys management.
  • /etc/named/logging.conf -> /var/named/chroot/etc/named/logging.conf : Configuration of loggins and channels
  • /etc/named/zones.conf -> /var/named/chroot/etc/named/zones.conf : Zones configuration.
  • /var/named/chroot/var/named/master/zones : Zones files
  • /var/named/chroot/var/named/master/zones/keys : Zones keys, if dnssec is enabled
  • /var/named/chroot/var/named/default : Default zones files - localhost, hint, etc

3. Setup

See Usage

What module affects

  • This module module will install Bind9, copy configuration files to chroot directory, copy zones to zones directory, and sign zones.

This is a great module to configure BIND server. Now the configuration is static in pools of configuration or the templates. But soon you will configure all the configuration options at declaration of class.

You have three ways to usage the class:

  1. Using default template [zone]
class { '::dnssec': 
  server_type    => 'master',
  dnssec_enabled => 'yes',

5. Tests

  1. Check BIND version
# dig @ -c CH -t txt version.bind +short

6. Limitations

OS compatibility [tested]:

  • Red Hat family 7+

We're working to support more OS.
