NAME

puppet-filebucket - Store and retrieve files in a filebucket

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

A stand-alone Puppet filebucket client.

USAGE

puppet filebucket mode [-h|--help] [-V|--version] [-d|--debug] [-v|--verbose] [-l|--local] [-r|--remote] [-s|--server server] [-b|--bucket directory] file file ...

Puppet filebucket can operate in three modes, with only one mode per call:

backup: Send one or more files to the specified file bucket. Each sent file is printed with its resulting md5 sum.

get: Return the text associated with an md5 sum. The text is printed to stdout, and only one file can be retrieved at a time.

restore: Given a file path and an md5 sum, store the content associated with the sum into the specified file path. You can specify an entirely new path to this argument; you are not restricted to restoring the content to its original location.

DESCRIPTION

This is a stand-alone filebucket client for sending files to a local or central filebucket.

Note that 'filebucket' defaults to using a network-based filebucket available on the server named 'puppet'. To use this, you'll have to be running as a user with valid Puppet certificates. Alternatively, you can use your local file bucket by specifying '--local'.

OPTIONS

Note that any setting that's valid in the configuration file is also a valid long argument. For example, 'ssldir' is a valid setting, so you can specify '--ssldir directory' as an argument.

See the configuration file documentation at https://docs.puppetlabs.com/references/stable/configuration.html for the full list of acceptable parameters. A commented list of all configuration options can also be generated by running puppet with '--genconfig'.
--debug Enable full debugging.
--help Print this help message
--local Use the local filebucket. This will use the default configuration information.
--remote
  Use a remote filebucket. This will use the default configuration information.
--server
  The server to send the file to, instead of locally.
--verbose
  Print extra information.
--version
  Print version information.

EXAMPLE

$ puppet filebucket backup /etc/passwd /etc/passwd: 429b225650b912a2ee067b0a4cf1e949 $ puppet filebucket restore /tmp/passwd 429b225650b912a2ee067b0a4cf1e949
