I'm attempting to copy a file down to the node using the following:

 file {'/var/cache/yum/elasticsearch-1.5.1.noarch.rpm':
       source => 'puppet:///modules/elasticsearch/elasticsearch-1.5.1.noarch.rpm',

On the node side i get:

  Error: /Stage[main]//Node[]/File[/var/cache/yum/elasticsearch-1.5.1.noarch.rpm]: Could not evaluate: Could not retrieve information from environment mh_prod source(s) puppet:///modules/elasticsearch/elasticsearch-1.5.1.noarch.rpm

I have confirmed the following on the master:

  • the file exists at : /etc/puppet/environments/mh_prod/modules/elasticsearch/files/elasticsearch-1.5.1.noarch.rpm

  • /etc/puppet/puppet.conf has the contains: modulepath = $confdir/modules:$confdir/environments/$environment/modules:$confdir/environments/gameops/modules templatedir = $confdir/environments/$environment/templates

    • the owner of /etc/puppet/environments/mh_prod/modules/elasticsearch/files is puppet:puppet

    I'm new to puppet and I can't find any logging info.

    Many thanks!

try running the node with `puppet agent --debug` and see if that provides any additional information?

First you have to write the modulepath=/etc/puppet/modules in puppet.conf file in [main] section. then whatever file you have to transfer on agent side, this file first present in your module i.e in files directory and then write. source => "puppet:///module_name/file_name",
