RECIPES

This cookbook provides the following recipes.

default

The default recipe installs Adam Jacob's dynect_rest gem during the Chef run's compile time to ensure it is available in the same run as utilizing the dynect_rr resource/provider.

ec2

Only use this recipe on Amazon AWS EC2 hosts!

The dynect::ec2 recipe provides an example of working with the Dyn API with EC2 instances. It creates CNAME records based on the EC2 instance ID (node.ec2.instance_id), and a constructed hostname from the dynect.ec2 attributes.

The recipe also edits /etc/resolv.conf to search compute-1.internal and the dynect.domain and use dynect.domain as the default domain, and it will set the nodes hostname per the DNS settings.

a_record

The dynect::a_record recipe will create an A record for the node using the detected hostname and IP address from ohai.
