Im getting this error on my node agent, when i run puppet agent --test

err: /File[/var/lib/puppet/lib]: Could not evaluate: Could not retrieve information from environment production source(s) puppet://puppet/plugins

The problem is that I don't have a environment called "production". Why is that being called? Is "production" some default or required name?

Puppet master and agent with version 2.7.25

environment = production by default. Add the version of Puppet you've installed for the master and agent. I haven't seen this error in a some time and IIRC it was because there were no facts to sync, but I thought it was solved in 2.7.

After reading more about it, I found that the environment by default is "production", but we can specify one in /etc/puppet/puppet.conf

environment = otherenviroment
