Nsupdate cookbook?


#1

I think I remember seeing a cookbook a while ago that had a provider that
used nsupdate for easily updating a bind server, but I’m unable to find
it. Can anyone please point me in the proper direction or tell me if I was
hallucinating? :wink:

Hey John,

I found this one ( https://github.com/erikh/chef-dynamic_dns ),
appears to drop a file to be run by cron, but I suspect it could be
refactored to a LWRP if thats what u are after

Not quite what I was looking for. The one I remember, had a provider so,
you could put something like this in a recipe:

nsupdate β€œmy.servername.com” do
cname "awesomecname.com"
action :create_cname
end

I don’t think it was called nsupdate and the attribute names were
different, but you get the idea.
