def add_system32_hosts_entry(host, opts = {})
  if host.is_powershell?
    hosts_file = "C:\\Windows\\System32\\Drivers\\etc\\hosts"
    host_entry = "#{opts['ip']}`t`t#{opts['name']}"
    on host, powershell("\$text = \\\"#{host_entry}\\\"; Add-Content -path '#{hosts_file}' -value \$text")
  else
    raise "nothing to do for #{host.name} on #{host['platform']}"
  end
end

#archive_file_from(host, from_path, opts = {}, archive_root = 'archive/sut-files', archive_name = 'sut-files.tgz') ⇒ Result

Copy a remote file to the local system and save it under a directory meant for storing SUT files to be viewed in the event of test failures.

Files are stored locally with the following structure:

./<archive_root>/<hostname>/<from_path>

This can be used during the post-suite phase to persist relevant log files from the SUTs so they can available with the test results (without having to preserve the SUT host and SSH in after the fact).

Example

Archive the Puppet Server log file from the master ('abc123'),
and archive the Puppet Agent log file from the agent ('xyz098'):

  archive_file_from(master, '/var/log/puppetlabs/puppetserver.log')
  archive_file_from(agent, '/var/log/puppetlabs/puppetagent.log')

Results in the following files on the test runner:

  archive/sut-files/abc123/var/log/puppetlabs/puppetserver.log
  archive/sut-files/xyz098/var/log/puppetlabs/puppetagent.log

Parameters:

  • host (Host)

    A host object (or some object that can be passed to #scp_from)

  • from_path (String)

    A remote absolute path on the host to copy.

  • opts (Hash{Symbol=>String}) (defaults to: {})

    Options to alter execution.

  • [String] (Hash)

    a customizable set of options

Options Hash (opts):

  • :silent (Boolean) — default: false

    Do not produce log output

  • :acceptable_exit_codes (Array<Fixnum>) — default: [0]

    An array (or range) of integer exit codes that should be considered acceptable. An error will be thrown if the exit code does not match one of the values in this list.

  • :accept_all_exit_codes (Boolean) — default: false

    Consider all exit codes as passing.

  • :dry_run (Boolean) — default: false

    Do not actually execute any commands on the SUT

  • :stdin (String) — default: nil

    Input to be provided during command execution on the SUT.

  • :pty (Boolean) — default: false

    Execute this command in a pseudoterminal.

  • :expect_connection_failure (Boolean) — default: false

    Expect this command to result in a connection failure, reconnect and continue execution.

  • :environment (Hash{String=>String}) — default: {}

    These will be treated as extra environment variables that should be set before running the command.

  • :run_in_parallel (Boolean)

    Whether to run on each host in parallel.

Returns:

  • (Result)

    Returns the result of the #scp_from operation.

#on(host, command, opts = {}, &block) ⇒ Result

The primary method for executing commands on some set of hosts.

Examples:

Most basic usage

on hosts, 'ls /tmp'

on agents, 'puppet agent -t', :acceptable_exit_codes => [0,2]

Using the returned result for any kind of checking

if on(host, 'ls -la ~').stdout =~ /\.bin/
  ...do some action...
end

Using TestCase helpers from within a test.

agents.each do |agent|
  on agent, 'cat /etc/puppet/puppet.conf' do
    assert_match stdout, /server = #{master}/, 'WTF Mate'
  end
end

Using a role (defined in a String) to identify the host

on "master", "echo hello"

Using a role (defined in a Symbol) to identify the host

on :dashboard, "echo hello"

Parameters:

  • host (Host, Array<Host>, String, Symbol)

    One or more hosts to act upon, or a role (String or Symbol) that identifies one or more hosts.

  • :dry_run (Boolean) — default: false

    Do not actually execute any commands on the SUT

  • :stdin (String) — default: nil

    Input to be provided during command execution on the SUT.

  • :pty (Boolean) — default: false

  • :expect_connection_failure (Boolean) — default: false

    Expect this command to result in a connection failure, reconnect and continue execution.

    These will be treated as extra environment variables that should be set before running the command.

  • :run_in_parallel (Boolean)

    Whether to run on each host in parallel.

Returns:

  • (Result)

    An object representing the outcome of command.

Raises:

  • (FailTest)

  assert_match result.stdout, /server = #{master}/, 'WTF Mate'
