Hello Puppeteers!

I have the following problem:

Recently I set up a puppet-dashboard server (running on a different machine than the master) and everything seems to be running fine except the fact that I have to manually trigger the puppet agent runs on the corresponding machines, in order for them to send their reports to the puppet master.

What is so different between the "normal" scheduled puppet deamon run (no cronjob) and the manual puppet run with:

puppet agent -t

How can I configure the agent so they send their reports also automatically to the master / dashboard server?

EDIT: I use puppet 2.6.8 installed as rubygems (master and agents) on a SLES 11 SP0-SP3 platform. Ruby is ruby 1.8.7 (2008-08-11 patchlevel 72)

Thanks in advance! Regards, Konstantin Boyanov

It is the following: reporturl = http://puppet.mydomain.com/reports/upload

Yes, reports = store, http is set

and clients have `report = true` This should work, check logs...
