cdist-type__xymon_config - Man Page

Deploy a Xymon configuration-directory

Description

This cdist type deploys a full Xymon configuration directory from the files-dir to the host.  This type requires an installed Xymon server, e.g. deployed by __xymon_server.

WARNING: This type _replaces_ the /etc/xymon/-directory! The previous contents is replaced/deleted!

Required Parameters

confdir

The directory in ./files/ that contains the /etc/xymon/-content to be deployed.

Optional Parameters

owner

passed as-is as --owner to __rsync

group

passed as-is as --group to __rsync

Optional Multiple Parameters

rsync-opts

identical to __rsync type, only ---options are supported

Required Files

The directory specified by confdir has to contain a valid xymon-configuration (/etc/xymon/) _plus_ the ext/-directory that normally resides in /usr/lib/xymon/server/.

Examples

__xymon_config --confdir=xymon.example.com
# this will replace /etc/xymon/ on the target host with
# the contents from __xymon_config/files/xymon.example.com/

## the same but set ownership to `xymon:xymon` and exclude
## the `netrc`-file:
__xymon_config --confdir=xymon.example.com \
   --owner xymon --group xymon \
   --rsync-opts "exclude=netrc"
