Note: it should work fine on Debian 8 but the official docker image does not
allow systemd to work easily, so it could not be tested.

To see an example, look at [.kitchen.yml](.kitchen.yml).
This cookbook is fully tested through the installation of a server and a client
in docker hosts. This uses kitchen, docker and some monkey-patching.
If you run kitchen list, you will see 2 suites, Each corresponds to a different
- server-ddns-centos-7: Bind server
- client-ddns-centos-7: DNS client with nsupdate

Configuration is done by overriding default attributes. All configuration keys
have a default defined in [attributes/default.rb](attributes/default.rb).
Please read it to have a comprehensive view of what and how you can configure
this cookbook behavior.

"['bind-ddns']['servers']" defined as an array. Else, it is considered
as a client.
Call init and then, following the node status, call client or
