Overview

This module provides the puppet_conf task.

Module Description

The puppet_conf task allows you to inspect and change the configuration options in the puppet.conf file.

Setup

Requirements

This module is compatible with Puppet Enterprise and Puppet Bolt.

  • To run tasks with Puppet Enterprise, PE 2018.1 or later must be installed on the machine from which you are running task commands. Machines receiving task requests must be Puppet agents.

  • To run tasks with Puppet Bolt, Bolt 1.0 or later must be installed on the machine from which you are running task commands. Machines receiving task requests must have SSH or WinRM services enabled.

Usage

To view the available actions and parameters, on the command line, run puppet task show puppet_conf or see the puppet_conf module page on the Forge. For a complete list of puppet.conf options, see the puppet.conf documentation. To show help for the task CLI, run puppet task run --help or bolt task run --help

To run a puppet_conf task, use the task command, specifying the action, section, and setting of the puppet.conf setting.

  • With PE on the command line, run puppet task run puppet_conf action=<ACTION> section=<SECTION> setting=<SETTING>.
  • With Bolt on the command line, run bolt task run puppet_conf action=<ACTION> section=<SECTION> setting=<SETTING>.

For example, to check the status of the agent graph setting in puppet.conf, run:

  • With PE, run puppet task run puppet_conf action=get section=agent setting=graph --nodes neptune
  • With Bolt, run bolt task run puppet_conf action=get section=agent setting=graph --nodes neptune --modulepath ~/modules

To set the value of the agent graph setting in puppet.conf, specify a value with the set action:

  • With PE, run puppet task run puppet_conf action=set section=agent setting=graph value=true --nodes neptune
  • With Bolt, run bolt task run puppet_conf action=set section=agent setting=graph value=true --nodes neptune --modulepath ~/modules

You can also run tasks in the PE console. See PE task documentation for complete information.

Reference

Limitations

To run acceptance tests against Windows machines, ensure that the BEAKER_password environment variable has been set to the password of the Administrator user of the target machine.
