I just installed puppet enterprise and noticed my nodes are not reporting all the facts that I think it should. There seem to be missing default ones like ipaddress_eth0 and ipaddress is pulling from public DNS instead of the host files (I have a public DNS server that is reporting a different IP right now because I have not migrated off it yet).

They all seem to be running facterversion is 1.7.5. The master is reporting more facts than the nodes are for some reason is that normal or is something just broken?

On the nodes, are you running "facter" or "facter -p"? The latter may need to be run as root/sudo . It shows the puppet facts in addition to the OS facts.

Both don't product a fact for ipaddress_eth0 and ipaddress has the wrong IP address. It actually reports the DNS IP address of the FQDN in public DNS servers rather than the IP reported by "ip addr".
