given a score based on how well
the author has formatted their
code and documentation and
modules are also checked for

Install, enable and configure the gdnsd DNS server.

  • gdnsd : Main class to install, enable and configure the server.
  • gdnsd::zone : Definition to manage zone files.


Install and enable the server (for the ip_nonlocal_bind to work, you will need the sysctl module), using the included template for the main configuration :

$options = {
  'listen' => '[ ]',
class { 'gdnsd':
  config_content   => template('gdnsd/config.erb'),
  ip_nonlocal_bind => true,

Install a single zone file :

gdnsd::zone { '':
  source => 'puppet:///modules/mymodule/dns/',

For multiple source-based files, use the $source_base parameter to be able to use an array of zone names :

gdnsd::zone { [ '', '', '' ]:
  source_base => 'puppet:///modules/mymodule/dns/',
