What genders affects

This module will install the genders packages and manage the genders config.

Setup Requirements

For systems with yum package manager using Puppet >= 6.0 there is a dependency on puppetlabs/yumrepo_core.


Install genders:

include ::genders

Define nodes either via genders class parameter or via defined type:

class { '::genders':
  nodes => {
    'compute01' => { 'attrs' => ['compute','rack01'] },
::genders::node { 'compute02':
  attrs => ['compute','rack01'],

A node's attributes can be defined as a Hash

::genders::node { 'compute02':
  attrs => {'role' => 'compute','rack' => 'rack01'},

A node can be defined as an Array

::genders::node { 'compute':
  node => ['compute01','compute02']
  attrs => ['compute','rack01'],
