Puppet Master - Could not retrieve fact fqdn/ipaddress?
When my local Puppet Agent connects to my Puppet Master, I see the following in the logs:
Aug 1 00:01:14 kungfumaster puppet-master: Could not retrieve fact fqdn Aug 1 00:01:14 kungfumaster puppet-master: Could not retrieve fact ipaddress
I'm not sure why this is. Is there any reason why the Puppet Master can't retrieve these facts? Is this an issue that the Puppet Agent isn't providing these facts to the Puppet Master or that the Puppet Master itself can't fetch them?
It seems that the warnings are generated from here in the
Puppet::Resource::Catalog::Compiler.set_server_facts method. I'm not sure why it can't get the facts, as I can get them both from irb and from the
facter command-line tool.
I can get both facts using the
facter command-line tool on the machine and both work just fine.
