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

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`.

You may find it useful to set `ip.addrs4` / `ip.addrs6` as mine_functions so
that minions can get each other's IP address. Example:

ip.addrs4: []
ip.addrs6: []
