Please forgive me if this has been answered somewhere, but unless my keywords to search on are just bad, i havent been able to locate the answer to this question

We have a number of systems that currently are not managed by puppet(foreman), and we would like to get them joined to the master however not initially run the manifests. We do not want them to run the manifests so that we can perform a --noop to see what things will be changed prior to applying the configuration, to ensure that the changes wont break anything on the systems.

Is there some extremely simple way to connect to the master without applying the configs? In reading the man page for puppet agent, i cannot determine if there is a way to accomplish this, but i'd think it would be possible..

Ok, I may have found my answer (of course only after posting the question). It appears that using the --noop in the --waitforcert will perform the join to the master, but perform the --noop for the configuration that it would apply? Can someone confirm if the following will accomplish what I need?

puppet agent --waitforcert 60 --test --noop
