Build Status

##Module Description

This is a module that will install the IIS Rewrite module (2.0) for IIS 7 and above. It is a good companion to our existing iis module (opentable/iis)


###What remaster affects

  • The installation of the iis rewrite package

###Beginning with iis_rewrite

The module consists of a single class

include iis_rewrite

By default, the package will work out the architecture of the machine and download the correct version of the msi from Microsoft. You can specify a download location other than the official Windows download, as follows:

class { 'iis_rewrite':
  package_source_location => ''

By using the default params, the package will download using the name format:


If you wish to download from your own location, we suggest you keep this naming convention. The default location and default package version can be found in params.pp.


###Classes and Defined Types

####Class: iis_rewrite The iis_rewrite module primary type, iis_rewrite, guides the installation of the IIS rewrite package

Parameters within iis_rewrite: #####package_source_location The full path to the source msi for the iis rewrite package. Defaults to download directly from Microsoft.

#####download_destination The destination path where the package will be downloaded to on the node. Defaults to C:\Temp


###Classes ####Public Classes
