Hi guys, I recently changed the IP of a puppet master, I then updated the dns server with the changed record, and then, for good measure, restarted the puppet master.

However I get connection errors on the client I'm using to test such as:

Warning: Unable to fect my node definition, but the agent run will continueL Warning: Permission denied - connect(2) Error: /File[C:/ProgramData/PuppetLabs/puppet/var/lib]: Failed to generate additional resources using 'eval_generate': Permission denied - connect(2) Error: /File[C:/ProgramData/PuppetLabs/puppet/var/lib]: Could not evaluate: Permission denied - connect(2) Could not retrieve file metadata for puppet://<dns-name-redacted>/plugins: Permission denied - connect(2)

And so on until it can't get the catalog and it fails.

The server when pinging gets the correct IP from DNS and the conf file is set to use the DNS name. I've done a search for the old IP in all the puppet configs, nothing.

Puppet-db is happily started and the console works fine (but doesn't think there's been any attempts at connection)

Any ideas on what I've missed or what needs doing?

Ah, looks like the reverse lookup was missed. I'll check back once it's replicated.

Ah well, doesn't seem to have done it. Ping -a is definitely now working on the windows host and 8140 is definitely responding.

Sorry, it was windows firewall, I didn't realise how locked down the clients were. I give myself 150 idiot points.
