Use the mount InSpec audit resource to test the mount points on FreeBSD and Linux systems.


Availability

Installation

This resource is distributed along with InSpec itself. You can use it automatically.

Version

This resource first became available in v1.0.0 of InSpec.

Syntax

An mount resource block declares the synchronization settings that should be tested:

describe mount('path') do
  it { should MATCHER 'value' }
end

where

  • ('path') is the path to the mounted directory
  • MATCHER is a valid matcher for this resource
  • 'value' is the value to be tested


Examples

The following examples show how to use this InSpec audit resource.

Test a the mount point on ‘/’

describe mount('/') do
  it { should be_mounted }
  its('device') { should eq  '/dev/mapper/VolGroup-lv_root' }
  its('type') { should eq  'ext4' }
  its('options') { should eq ['rw', 'mode=620'] }
end

The be_mounted matcher tests if the file is accessible from the file system:

it { should be_mounted }

The device matcher tests the device from the fstab table:

its('device') { should eq  '/dev/mapper/VolGroup-lv_root' }

options

The options matcher tests the mount options for the file system from the fstab table:

its('options') { should eq ['rw', 'mode=620'] }

type

The type matcher tests the file system type:

its('type') { should eq  'ext4' }
