cdist-type__hosts - Man Page

manage entries in /etc/hosts

Description

Add or remove entries from /etc/hosts file.

Optional Parameters

state

If state is present, make object_id resolve to ip. If state is absent, object_id will no longer resolve via /etc/hosts, if it was previously configured with this type. Manually inserted entries are unaffected.

ip

IP address, to which hostname (=object_id) must resolve. If state is present, this parameter is mandatory, if state is absent, this parameter is silently ignored.

alias

An alias for the hostname. This parameter can be specified multiple times (once per alias).

Examples

# Now `funny' resolves to 192.168.1.76,
__hosts funny --ip 192.168.1.76
# and `happy' no longer resolve via /etc/hosts if it was
# previously configured via __hosts.
__hosts happy --state absent

__hosts srv1.example.com --ip 192.168.0.42 --alias srv1
