Join to a puppet master without running manifests?
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..
