I've seen several posts and solution for this problem, I tried many of them but still i am not able to solve it.
Please help!

I am using puppet 3.7.5 which is not installed via yum due to network restriction, so i downloaded the required packages from another server and successfully installed them, all the stuff (Puppet server, dashboard and agent on client machine) are working fine.

But, when i am trying to run puppet I am getting this error everytime I created the weblogic module with one simple test init.pp file with one simple class - but it's not working.

I tried creating/configuring weblogic directory inside /etc/puppet/modules and then /etc/puppet/ but it didn't work

I tried with changing permissions of modules directory to puppet:puppet and with root:root, but it didn't work!

On Agent side :

[root@pclient ~]# puppet agent --test --verbose
Info: Retrieving pluginfacts
Info: Retrieving plugin
Error: Could not retrieve catalog from remote server: Error 400 on SERVER: Could not find class weblogic at /etc/puppet/manifests/site.pp:4 on node pclient
Warning: Not using cache on failed catalog
Error: Could not retrieve catalog; skipping run

Can you add "--debug --trace" to the puppet agent arguments and post a link to a pastebin of the output? I don't see anything immediately wrong with the code, so there must be something else strange going on. Please post a link to your puppet.conf file, too.

What is the output of "puppet module list"?

i faced the same problem and still facing it, i only turned around temporally by importing the class file to my manifest. my puppet module list output shows my class since i'd created metadata file for it.

Strangely but when i tried to install puppet master on another machine, it worked fine there. I tried to find out the difference with the existing installation but couldn't find any.

So, i removed everything on the main puppet master and re-installed and configured everything from scratch and now its working fine :)
