Puppet module

This module provides classes for managing the puppet agent and puppet master. It will setup passenger and apache on the puppetmaster. Please note this will not setup puppetdb. This can be configured using the puppetdb module http://forge.puppetlabs.com/puppetlabs/puppetdb. Storedconfigs with puppetdb will only work on puppet versions newer than 2.7.12.


This module is a fork of http://forge.puppetlabs.com/stephenrjohnson/puppet


If you are using a RedHat based OS you also need to have the EPEL repo configured as this module requires the passenger apache module.

Requires the following modules from puppetforge: stdlib, apache, concat, inifile

Usage Note

If you are using this module to install a puppetmaster and serving the manifest of the machine. You may have issues with it halting the puppet master if it is running through webrick. In which case run a single puppet run using

puppet apply -e "class{'puppet::repo::puppetlabs': } Class['puppet::repo::puppetlabs'] -> Package <| |> class { 'puppetdb': }  class { 'puppet::master': storeconfigs => true }"


class { 'puppetdb': }
class { 'puppet::master':
    storeconfigs              => true,

Master environments

puppet::masterenv {'dev':
    modulepath => '/etc/puppet/evn/dev/modules',
    manifest   => '/etc/puppet/env/dev/site.pp',
puppet::masterenv {'production':
    modulepath => '/etc/puppet/evn/production/modules',
    manifest   => '/etc/puppet/env/production/site.pp',


class { 'puppet::agent':
    puppet_server             => master.puppetlabs.vm,
    environment               => production,
    splay                     => true,


Install gems:

bundle install --path vendor/bundle

Lint and rspec-puppet:

bundle exec rake lint
bundle exec rake spec

If you have a working Vagrant setup you can run the rspec-system tests:

bundle exec rake spec:system

To use different base boxes than the default pass the name of the box to the rake command with the RSPEC_SET environment variable (check out .nodelist.yml for box names):

RSPEC_SET=centos-64-x64 bundle exec rake spec:system
