PuppetDB Exported Resources in Masterless Puppet

I am trying to get PuppetDB (2.1.0) and exported resources working in masterless mode and it does not appear to be working as expected. I am trying to collect resources on all my hosts and export them to a centralized server.

This is working as expected in a Master / Agent configuration however I have a requirement to make this work in a masterless configuration.

I can see the resources in PuppetDB when I query the resource but it won't export the resource from other machines only itself.

First question can this be done in masterless puppet mode (puppet apply)?

Any and all help is greatly appreciated.


  • Server A puppet apply collects resource
  • Server B puppet apply collects resource
  • Server C puppet apply collects and exports resources


Server C creates the file for server C only

Expected Outcome

Server C creates 3 files one for each server

Quick and dirty Sample

class foo (
  $export = false
) {

    @@file { "/tmp/${::fqdn}":
      ensure  => present,
      content => 'foo',
      tag     => 'testing'

    if $export {
      File << | tag == 'testing' | >>

Removing the following from my routes.yaml appears to have solved the problem

    terminus: ral
    cache: puppetdb
