Salt modules for discovering and exposing minion's IP addresses

Project description


A quick and simple module to get information about the various IPs of your salt minions.

This is meant to be installed on minions.


On minions, run pip install spiro-ip

Or, as a state:

{% if grains['pythonversion'][0] == 2 %}
{% set pipbin = "/usr/bin/pip2" %}
{% else %}
{% set pipbin = "/usr/bin/pip3" %}
{% endif %}

    - bin_env: {{pipbin}}


A number of things are provided:


  • externalip4, externalip6: Queries external services for your IP, useful if the minion is behind a NAT or other complex network


  • ip.addrs4, ip.addrs6: Collates information about a minion's IP address from several sources.

    • network.ipaddrs / network.ipaddrs6
    • AWS metadata (if you've set metadata_server_grains: True, see the metadata grain)
    • externalip4 / externalip6 grains (above)


No configuration is required. However, as mentioned above, it might be useful to set metadata_server_grains: True.
