salt.states.ddns

Dynamic DNS updates

Ensure a DNS record is present or absent utilizing RFC 2136 type dynamic updates.

depends:

Note

The dnspython module is required when managing DDNS using a TSIG key. If you are not using a TSIG key, DDNS is allowed by ACLs based on IP address and the dnspython module is not required.

Example:

webserver:
  ddns.present:
    - zone: example.com
    - ttl: 60
    - data: 111.222.333.444
    - nameserver: 123.234.345.456
    - keyfile: /srv/salt/dnspy_tsig_key.txt
salt.states.ddns.absent(name, zone, data=None, rdtype=None, **kwargs)

Ensures that the named DNS record is absent.

name
The host portion of the DNS record, e.g., 'webserver'. Name and zone are concatenated when the entry is created unless name includes a trailing dot, so make sure that information is not duplicated in these two arguments.
zone
The zone to check
data
Data for the DNS record. E.g., the IP address for an A record. If omitted, all records matching name (and rdtype, if provided) will be purged.
rdtype
DNS resource type. If omitted, all types will be purged.
**kwargs
Additional arguments the ddns.update function may need (e.g. nameserver, keyfile, keyname). Note that the nsupdate key file can’t be reused by this function, the keyfile and other arguments must follow the dnspython spec.
salt.states.ddns.present(name, zone, ttl, data, rdtype=u'A', **kwargs)

Ensures that the named DNS record is present with the given ttl.

name
The host portion of the DNS record, e.g., 'webserver'. Name and zone are concatenated when the entry is created unless name includes a trailing dot, so make sure that information is not duplicated in these two arguments.
zone
The zone to check/update
ttl
TTL for the record
data
Data for the DNS record. E.g., the IP address for an A record.
rdtype
DNS resource type. Default 'A'.
**kwargs
Additional arguments the ddns.update function may need (e.g. nameserver, keyfile, keyname). Note that the nsupdate key file can’t be reused by this function, the keyfile and other arguments must follow the dnspython spec.
