I’m using the OpenSource version of puppet, the system configuration engine to keep some Solaris systems in sync. For some modules, I wanted to know which zones are running on a given system. So I extended facter, puppet’s system fact collecting framework a bit.
This little patch adds a list of zones and a mapping for shared IP interfaces to their zones to the facts. Something like
root@global:~# /opt/bin/facter ... interfaces => lo0,lo0_1,beaggr0,beaggr0_1,feaggr0,feaggr0_1 ipaddress => 0.20.72.116 ipaddress6 => :: ipaddress_beaggr0 => 0.20.72.116 ipaddress_beaggr0_1 => 0.20.72.180 ipaddress_feaggr0 => 126.96.36.199 ipaddress_feaggr0_1 => 188.8.131.52 ipaddress_lo0 => 127.0.0.1 ipaddress_lo0_1 => 127.0.0.1 ... macaddress => 00:21:28:af:fd:06 macaddress_beaggr0 => 0:21:28:af:fd:6 macaddress_feaggr0 => 0:21:28:af:fd:7 ... netmask => 255.255.252.0 netmask_beaggr0 => 255.255.252.0 netmask_beaggr0_1 => 255.255.252.0 netmask_feaggr0 => 255.255.255.240 netmask_feaggr0_1 => 255.255.255.240 netmask_lo0 => 255.0.0.0 netmask_lo0_1 => 255.0.0.0 network_beaggr0 => 0.20.72.0 network_beaggr0_1 => 0.20.72.0 network_feaggr0 => 184.108.40.206 network_feaggr0_1 => 220.127.116.11 network_lo0 => 127.0.0.0 network_lo0_1 => 127.0.0.0 ... zone_beaggr0_1 => z004 zone_feaggr0_1 => z004 zone_lo0_1 => z004 zones => global, z003,z002,z001,z004
I don’t know if that’s useful for anybody else. But just in case;-)
