I have puppet master 3.6.2 on Linux and puppet agent 3.6.2 on Windows Server 2008 R2

On the Windows servers in Windows Application Logs I have Warning messages:

Log Name: Application Source:
Puppet Date: 9/26/2014
11:19:59 AM Event ID: 2 Task
Category: None Level: Warning
Keywords: Classic User:
N/A Computer: - Description:
Copying owner/mode/group from the source file on Windows is deprecated; use source_permissions => ignore. (at C:/Program Files (x86)/Puppet Labs/Puppet/puppet/lib/puppet/type/file/source.rb:120:in `each')

I have found many some warning messages in logs in other topics about puppet and windows. But nobody tells or asks about them.

Have a look at the section 'Always Block Source Permissions on Windows' at resourcesfilewindows

I had the same warning on a windows 7 agent.

I corrected the markup to the link. Thanks for your hint. The link in the comment references the 3.6 version. My answers references the latest version in case the the content of the article is updated sometime.
