intend to set a more meaningful hostname than the usual ip* and dom* names
assigned by Amazon.
My source csv file is setup as:
In my hostname/init.pp file, I wanted to use *$instancename =
extlookup($ec2_public_hostname, 'undefined',$csv)* to return the second
value in the row, but it instead returns the default value, i.e. it didn't
When I use* **$instancename = extlookup('publicdns', 'undefined',$csv)*, it
returns the concatenated "ec2-184-73.compute-1.amazonaws.com
ec2-23-20.compute-2.amazonaws.com". Similarly, when I use *$instancename =
extlookup('name', 'undefined',$csv)*, it returns the value
This isn't consistent with how I understand extlookup to work, since I
thought it is supposed to read across rows, not columns. How should I
identify and properly extract the second field of a given row?
