Generating the DHCP, DNS, Kadeploy, Conman and Lanpower configurations
* The source code and the templates of the generators are located in the reference-repo in the generators/puppet/ directory.
* Additional configuration files (ex: console passwords, kadeploy tuning options etc.) are located within the puppet-repo in puppet-repo/modules/<module_name>/generators/.
* You can either run the generators from the reference-repo or from the puppet-repo.
* The output files of the generators are created directly at the right place in the puppet-repo directories
(ie. you can use git diff to display the changes made by the generators before committing them).
### Running the scripts from the puppet-repo
You have to set the 'reference_repo' environment variable so that the generators find the source code, templates and reference-repo data:
Usage example:
$ (cd /tmp; git clone ssh:// # or use your existing local copy of the repository
$ export reference_repo=/tmp/reference-repo
$ cd puppet-repo/modules/<module_name>/generators/
$ rake # run the generator for <module_name>
### Running the scripts from the reference-repo
It allows to run all the generators at once. You have to set the 'puppet_repo' environment variable so that the generators find the configuration files. Default is /tmp/puppet-repo.
Usage example:
$ (cd /tmp; git clone ssh:// # or use your existing local copy of the repository
$ export puppet_repo=/tmp/puppet-repo
$ rake
You also can also run the generators one by one:
$ ruby bindg5k.rb
$ ruby conmang5k.rb
$ ruby dhcpg5k.rb
$ ruby kadeployg5k.rb
$ ruby lanpowerg5k.rb
To enable the standalone release of the generators, the conf-examples/ directory includes examples of configuration files and the generators can be run without access to the puppet-repo:
$ conf_dir=conf-examples rake
### Notes about the conmang5k/lanpowerg5k generators
* The configuration is generated for both the clusters and servers entries of the reference-api.
* The configuration is shared between the module conmang5k and lanpowerg5k
** Passwords are stored in puppet-repo/modules/conmang5k/generators/console-password.yaml
** Additional configuration options are located in puppet-repo/modules/conmang5k/generators/console-password.yaml
### Notes about the kadeplog5k generator
* It generated both the configuration of the kadeploy and kadeploy-dev servers.
* It generates the <site_uid>/clusters.conf and the <site_uid>/<cluster_uid>-clusters.conf files for each sites.
* The template of the <site_uid>/<cluster_uid>-clusters.conf files is located in reference-repo/generators/puppet/templates/kadeployg5k.conf.erb.
It includes default parameters.
* Cluster specific tuning options are located in puppet-repo/modules/kadeployg5k/generators/kadeployg5k.yaml and kadeployg5k-dev.yaml
### Notes about the DNS and DHCP generators
* Those generators are solely based on the data of the reference API.
* DHCP and DNS entries are generated for nodes (including MIC accelerators), network equipments, pdus and dom0.
In addition, the DNS also has kavlan entries and the DHCP includes admin laptops.
* The DNS script generates the global-<site_uid>.conf files and the zones/<site_uid>/*.db files.
* DNS CNAME are generated for the main ethernet interface of the nodes.
* DNS entries can be added manually to the configuration:
** A new zone can be added directly to the ./zones/<site_uid>/ directory. Re-run the generator after adding the file to add the zone to the global-<site_uid>.conf files.
** For existing zone, add a ./zones/<site_uid>/<zone_name>-manual.db file and re-run the generator.
This file will get included automatically in the generated zone file called ./zones/<site_uid>/<zone_name>.db.
See bindg5k/files/zones/nancy/ for examples. <zone_name>-manual.db files do no need the usual headers ($TTL directives etc.) of zone files.
