generated documentation.

Reference documentation is generated directly from source code using puppet-strings. You may regenerate the documentation by running:

bundle exec puppet strings

The documentation is no substitute for reading and understanding the module source code, and all users should ensure they are familiar and comfortable with the operations this module performs before using it.


This module is released under the MIT license:


  • Not supported by Puppet, Inc.


PRs accepted :)


This module supports testing using PDQTest.

Test can be executed with:

bundle install

See .travis.yml for a working CI example


Based on an original module hosted at github.com/ajjahn/puppet-samba. Since upstream looks dormant, I created a new module updated for Puppet 4 and including a customer patch.
