salt.modules.freezer.freeze(name=None, force=False, **kwargs)

Save the list of package and repos in a freeze file.

As this module is build on top of the pkg module, the user can send extra attributes to the underlying pkg module via kwargs. This function will call pkg.list_pkgs and pkg.list_repos, and any additional arguments will be passed through to those functions.

name

Name of the frozen state. Optional.

force

If true, overwrite the state. Optional.

CLI Example:

salt '*' freezer.freeze
salt '*' freezer.freeze pre_install
salt '*' freezer.freeze force=True root=/chroot
salt.modules.freezer.list_()

Return the list of frozen states.

CLI Example:

salt '*' freezer.list
salt.modules.freezer.restore(name=None, **kwargs)

Make sure that the system contains the packages and repos from a frozen state.

Read the list of packages and repositories from the freeze file, and compare it with the current list of packages and repos. If there is any difference, all the missing packages are repos will be installed, and all the extra packages and repos will be removed.

As this module is build on top of the pkg module, the user can send extra attributes to the underlying pkg module via kwargs. This function will call pkg.list_repos, pkg.mod_repo, pkg.list_pkgs, pkg.install, pkg.remove and pkg.del_repo, and any additional arguments will be passed through to those functions.

name

Name of the frozen state. Optional.

CLI Example:

salt '*' freezer.restore
salt '*' freezer.restore root=/chroot
salt.modules.freezer.status(name=None)

Return True if there is already a frozen state.

A frozen state is merely a list of packages (including the version) in a specific time. This information can be used to compare with the current list of packages, and revert the installation of some extra packages that are in the system.

name

Name of the frozen state. Optional.

CLI Example:

salt '*' freezer.status
salt '*' freezer.status pre_install
