Creating a Puppet Module

A Puppet Module is used to control a server resource, like a daemon, an OS package, or hardware.

Puppet-Diamond environment

Enter the Puppet-Diamond virtual environment and import your configuration settings.

workon puppet-diamond
source ~/.puppet-diamond

Scaffold initial files

The first step is to scaffold a new module. The general form of the command is: diamond-module ${SERVICE_NAME}

The following example demonstrates creating a puppet module for Postfix. diamond-module postfix

Add to a host

Add the new module class to a profile, located in ${PD_PATH}/${PD_MASTER}/profiles.

class {"postfix": ;}

Sync and Apply

Sync to the puppetmaster and apply the changes to the client. ${PUPPET_HOST} ${PUPPET_HOST}
