The puppet agent worked before fine, but after doing some testing it hangs on the beginning of the apply command

puppet apply -t -d
Debug: Runtime environment: puppet_version=3.7.1, ruby_version=1.9.3, run_mode=user, default_encoding=US-ASCII

I already have restarted the puppet agent service, but this have not helped at all. I am not sure about where to put my hands on to solve this problem

It showed that it had a problem to generate a PID file with the -t option.

puppet apply -d
Error: Could not run: Could not create PID file: /var/run/puppet/

It worked again when I started it with the -t option.

Maybe I am missing some information what the -t option does.


seems to be that I only had a lucky shot. One of my clients is having this problem again.
