I am testing augeas, my puppet version is 3.3.X (both server nad master). When I compile below code, getting error message.

class testservice::ser_file {

$dummy_value = {
    service1 => {value => 1,
                    port  => 100,},
    service2 => {value => 2,
                    port  => 102,},

  define ser_val($value,$port) {

  augeas { "serviceabc$value":
    context => "/files/etc/services",
    changes => ["ins service-name after service-name[last()]",
                "set service-name[last()] serviceabc$value",
                "set service-name[.='serviceabc$value']/port 25$port"],

   onlyif => "match /files/etc/services/service-name[port = '211'] size == 0",

Below is the error message.

Debug: Augeas[serviceabc1](provider=augeas): Opening augeas with root /, lens path , flags 32
Debug: Augeas[serviceabc1](provider=augeas): Augeas version 1.1.0 is installed

The "onlyif" parameter looks like it needs $port rather than having 211 hardcoded. Try:

onlyif => "match /files/etc/services/service-name[port = '25${port}'] size == 0",

thanks Domcleal. I ahve changes as you mentioned. But I am getting same error. I need too change service file like serviceabc1 000/tcp serviceabc2 102/tcp.

Does your /etc/services file already have 000/tcp (??) and 102/tcp in it? Please update the ticket to show the current manifest - the whole thing's rather unclear to me.
