There are TOO many post and solution for this problem, but still i am not able to solve it. I am using puppet 3.7.5

Following is details

root@p1:/etc/puppet/manifests# ls -l
total 8
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 40 Apr  9 12:37 nodes.pp
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 18 Apr  9 11:58 site.pp
root@p1:/etc/puppet/manifests# cat nodes.pp
node '' {
        include mytest
root@p1:/etc/puppet/manifests# cat site.pp
import 'nodes.pp'
Module path

root@p1:/etc/puppet/manifests# puppet master --configprint modulepath

root@p1:/etc/puppet# tree -L 2 -d modules
- configfiles
  -- files
  -- manifests
- services
  -- files
  -- manifests

root@p1:/etc/puppet# cat modules/services/manifests/init.pp
class mytest {
       file { '/tmp/puppettestfgt56666' :
          mode    => 0644,
          content => "This Learning Puppet VM's IP address is ${ipaddress}",

On agent

You don't have the right module layout.

The autoloader is very particular about where it looks for classes.

You have the class mytest defined in a location where it is looking for services.

You need to either make a module named mytest and move modules/services/manifests/init.pp to modules/mytest/manifests/init.pp or rename the file to mytest.pp and the class to services::mytest.

You may wish to review the following docs as well:

Or rename class to services in your init.pp file which would match your current folder layout. class services {
