It looks to me like you don't have any storeconfigs setup. If so, puppet should acts exactly as you describe it. Do you have a PuppetDB properly setup?

As from - :

Exported resources require catalog storage and searching (formerly known as “storeconfigs”) to be enabled on your puppet master. Both the catalog storage and the searching (among other features) are provided by PuppetDB. [..] Exported resources can also be enabled by the deprecated active_record storeconfigs backend. However, all new users should avoid that and use PuppetDB instead.

You are using a old Puppet 2.7.* so you can use deprecated storeconfigs = active_record option, but you really should use PuppetDB.

Hi Cardil, I have configured Puppet db in same puppet master server and I could see log rolling in puppet log whenever agent run in client node but its not throwing any error. However puppetmaster server version is: 3.7.3. Thanks for your reply.. Please find the below puppetdb log.

I really don't know is it gonna work with 3.7 master and 2.7 agent. It's a big difference. The logs dosn't tell anything to me. I would log in into PostgreSQL puppetdb database and try to find your exported resource with SQL. If it's there that's fine - it could tell that problem is on agent node

Hi Cardil, Both client and master agents are running same version 3.7. For trouble shooting purpose I un installed puppetdb. Installed MYSQL server in master server and configured together, it seems db is working fine but I am not able to export ip address from one machine to another.
