gabe/set_noop — version 1.1.6 Jul 9th 2019


This cross-platform module consists of a task to manipulate the "noop" setting in an agent's puppet.conf.


The set_noop task updates an agent's puppet.conf to manipulate the "noop" setting in the [agent] section. For example, provided you've got SSH keys, host keys, bolt in your command path, and this module installed into your modulepath, setting nodes to noop mode is as simple as:

bolt task run set_noop setting=true \
  --nodes ssh://bert,ssh://ernie

For more information on Bolt's configuration and command-line options, refer to the Bolt online documentation.

Here's a more thorough example of taking some Linux nodes out of noop mode, prompting for the root user's password and ignoring SSH host key checks:

bolt task run set_noop setting=false \
  --no-host-key-check --user root --password \
  --nodes ssh://waldorf,ssh://statler

Similarly, a thorough example of setting Windows nodes into noop mode, logging in as Administrator, prompting for password, and using a non-ssl transport:

bolt task run set_noop setting=true \
  --no-ssl --user Administrator --password \
  --nodes winrm://kermit

This task will also become available in the Puppet Enterprise console, as soon as you install the module into your production environment. (Add it to your Puppetfile.)
