    since when I recursely transfer a directory it ended up changing all of the permissions to one mode instead . . of retaining its own permissions modes

    hello, does anyone know the best approach for a puppet manifest when a host is provisioned to drop a file onto another host, e.g provision node03 and during the node03 puppet run, it will remotely place a file into a directory on node01 and reload the service on node01

    Can I declare a dependency but not execute it? What I mean is that I have a module and it will not work without say Package['wget'] being present. But I don't want to manage that package, only tell the consumer (= user of my module) that they should install it. Would simply having require=>Package['wget'] be enough and just let it error out and let the user fix it, or is there some good way to do this?
    David Caro
    @Fuco1 the require is enough, but if you want to install the package if it's not there already, you can also use ensure_package
    (that's what I do at least) xd
    Matus Goljer
    @david-caro Thanks, I'm going to go with just the require then. I don't want to manage the packages because that usually just leads to pain.
    I'll need to learn how to unit/integration test puppet manifests to make sure things work out when I get them all together.

    I am having a weird issue with Hiera
    When I check with facter, I can see my own variable: /opt/puppetlabs/bin/facter -y --external-dir /path/to/devops/puppet/hiera/
    aio_agent_version: 5.3.3
    but when I try to do a lookup I get the following error: Error: Function lookup() did not find a value for the name 'airflow_customers'
    i am trying to attach existing lb to multiple instances on same tf code with count , but i am seeing an error, but for single instance its possible, is there any work around?

    Hello? I'm trying to setup a windows puppet-agent but I can't seem to be able to receive a certificate-sign request on the puppet master
    whenever I try the puppet agent -t I can see a GET request on the server-access logs
    I'm able to configure it using a RHEL machine
    Massimo Sporchia
    Two problems: I was using puppet server 1.2 and a too recent version of puppet-agent
    I downgraded the puppet-agent, then deleted the generated keys, retried and all is well :)

    2018-05-24 15:15:35 +0000 Puppet (warning): The function 'hiera' is deprecated in favor of using 'lookup'. See https://docs.puppet.com/puppet/5.5/reference/deprecated_language.html\n (file & line not available)
    any idea about this warning
    yes. Hiera is not available for puppet 5+ ... Instead you need to use lookup function
    just another improvement for puppet :)

    This isn't really where Puppet interaction happens. You're more likely to get help going through one of the options at https://puppet.com/community, particularly Slack.

    Hi, does the firewall module support centos8?
    pmelse- Jian Zhu (Gitter): looking at the module, I'm thinking it supports nftables on centos
    musicmatze Good morning everyone. If I'd like to ask absolute beginner questions on puppet, is this the channel for me?

    Hey, need some help
    we are using Puppet 3.7.4 in our project….how feasible it is to upgrade it to latest stable version? I understand all the Services Versions of puppet modules are supposed to be upgraded as well if we upgrade the Puppet.

    I understand its not going to be easy….but is there some kind of guide for migration or something like that?

    I am beginning to learn puppet…

    we are using the following versions:
    facter (2.4.1)
    CFPropertyList (~> 2.2.6)
    hiera (1.3.4)
    hiera-eyaml (2.0.6)
    highline (>= 1.6.19)
    trollop (>= 2.0)
    highline (1.6.21)
    hitch (1.0.2)
    highline (>= 1.6.2)
    jmespath (1.0.2)
    multi_json (~> 1.0)
    json_pure (1.8.2)
    multi_json (1.11.0)
    puppet (3.7.4)
    facter (> 1.6, < 3)
    hiera (~> 1.0)

    john The big jump will be from 3 to 4. There are some upgrade guides on the puppet site. I would start by testing it out on vagrant. You might have to find some version of the modules you are using that support 3/4 then when you are on 4 the move to 5/6 is a lot simpler.
