Bastille uses a command target arguments syntax, meaning that each command requires a target. Targets are usually containers, but can also be releases.

Targeting a container is done by providing the exact containers name.

Targeting a release is done by providing the release name. (Note: do not include the -pX point-release version.)

Bastille includes a pre-defined keyword ALL to target all running containers.

In the future I would like to support more options, including globbing, lists and regular-expressions.

Examples: Containers

ishmael ~ # bastille ...
command target args description
cmd ALL ‘sockstat -4’ execute sockstat -4 in ALL containers (ip4 sockets)
console mariadb02 console (shell) access to mariadb02
pkg web01 | ‘install nginx’ install nginx package in web01 container
pkg ALL upgrade upgrade packages in ALL containers
pkg ALL audit (CVE) audit packages in ALL containers
sysrc web01 nginx_enable=YES execute sysrc nginx_enable=YES in web01 container
template ALL username/base apply username/base template to ALL containers
start web02 start web02 container
cp | bastion03 | /tmp/resolv.conf-cf etc/resolv.conf | copy host-path to container-path in bastion03
create folsom 12.1-RELEASE create 12.1 container named folsom with IP

Examples: Releases
