Using single hiera hash for two create_resources, and mounting filesystems
I am trying to use the same hiera hash to create the mount point and mounts. (Would be nice if mount could create the mount points using 3.1.1) My plan was to define create_mount_points and use create_resources with the same hash, and just though away what I dont use.... maybe there is a better means? Here is the mount class: class fstab::mounts ( $config = undef ) { $defaults = { atboot => true, ensure => ''mounted'', } $hiera_config = hiera_hash(''fs...

Does create_resources support virtual resources?
Hi all, I''m interested pushing my user list out of my users manifest and into Hiera. Unfortunately I haven''t been able to get it to work the way I thought it would. The error suggests that perhaps create_resources cannot create virtual resources, but the docs I''ve read so far don''t address it. The class (in init.pp): class users { $system_users = hiera(''system_users'') $system_groups = hiera(''system_groups'') create_resources("@users::mkuser&q...

Hiera, Hashes, and Create_resources
Howdy: I need some help please to get hiera configuration data derived from YAML, thru puppet. I have studied Internet search results and puppet documentation on create_resources and custom defines but need a little help along. I can print out the YAML from variables, arrays, and, finally, hashes too from a puppet manifest. One thing that is stumping me is how to access from the custom define only the YAML element of server-a which is I believe is an object of an array of...

Profiles, Hiera, and create_resources('class','...')
...nent module described by Craig Dunn in his blog here: and discussed on the list the other day. As I was implementing this for a profile using the apache module, I realized that I could make another refinement to our approach by using create_resources(''class'',''<module name>'') to pull our hiera data into the apache class and override any defaults needed. It looks good to me but there are some concerns that it will come back and bite us in ways we don''t expect later on, when updating to Puppet...

Executing a script after creating vhosts with create_resources
...''d love a bit of advice in terms of how I should best go about this. I am creating a bunch of vhosts, their definitions are stored in json (I''m using heira) that json file will be generated from data held on another server. I''m just using the puppetlabs apache module and create_resources to then generate all the vhosts and their directories etc. I''m then doing the same to create associated mysql databases. $sites = hiera_hash(''apache_vhosts'') create_resources(''apache::vhost'',$sites) $db = hiera_hash(''mysql_db'')...

Can I create virtual resources with create_resources function

Test the result of a hiera_hash() lookup
...: privileges: - select_priv ''user2@localhost'': privileges: - select_priv - insert_priv - lock_tables_priv I have a wrapper class that then does this: class custom::mysql::grants { $grantoptions = hiera_hash(''mysql::grants'') create_resources(''database_grant'', $grantoptions) } That works fine as long as I include the custom::mysql::grants class. But right now I can only include that class on nodes where I define explicit grants. If I don''t have the mysql::grants hash defined for that node in hiera, puppet...

Base directory with File
...the base_dir as a property. Should I make a prepend function that would prepend base_dir to each bar and then pass that to File? I tried a definition but then to loop I have to generate a single loop-able structure to call the definition with that contains both bars and base_dir. I looked at create_resources but that seems like it''d force me to make more things variables than I wanted and duplicate more than I would like.
