HI, I recently had to reinstall my lab environment of puppet, and for some reason I get this message on my puppet nodes when running - "facter ipaddress" I'm kinda new to puppet and I have no idea why that happen, last time I installed exactly the same and it didn't happen. Here's is the full error message: I'm using Windows, and VMWare Player, Putty

"Could not retrieve fact='ipaddress', resolution='<anonymous>': Network is unreachable - connect(2) Timed out after 2 seconds while resolving fact='ipaddress', resoultion='<anonymous>'

looks like this is more related to the DNS setup you have - can you type

hostname host hostname

if theres a long (>2s) delay then that would be the issue - has /etc/resolv.conf changed?

(Im assuming your using linux here..)
