Module for managing dnsmasq


Shows installed version of dnsmasq and compile options.

CLI Example:

salt '*' dnsmasq.fullversion

Dumps all options from the config file.


The location of the config file from which to obtain contents. Defaults to /etc/dnsmasq.conf.

CLI Examples:

salt '*' dnsmasq.get_config
salt '*' dnsmasq.get_config config_file=/etc/dnsmasq.conf
salt.modules.dnsmasq.set_config(config_file='/etc/dnsmasq.conf', follow=True, **kwargs)

Sets a value or a set of values in the specified file. By default, if conf-dir is configured in this file, salt will attempt to set the option in any file inside the conf-dir where it has already been enabled. If it does not find it inside any files, it will append it to the main config file. Setting follow to False will turn off this behavior.

If a config option currently appears multiple times (such as dhcp-host, which is specified at least once per host), the new option will be added to the end of the main config file (and not to any includes). If you need an option added to a specific include file, specify it as the config_file.

  • config_file (string) -- config file where settings should be updated / added.

  • follow (bool) -- attempt to set the config option inside any file within the conf-dir where it has already been enabled.

  • kwargs -- key value pairs that contain the configuration settings that you want set.

CLI Examples:

salt '*' dnsmasq.set_config
salt '*' dnsmasq.set_config follow=False
salt '*' dnsmasq.set_config config_file=/etc/dnsmasq.conf

Shows installed version of dnsmasq.

CLI Example:

salt '*' dnsmasq.version
