It appears the tried and true configuration of Blocking source permissions on Windows isn't necessary in PE v2015.2. I.E. Setting file type's source_permissions to ignore in the site.pp causes errors during agent runs.

I haven't found any documentation regarding this specific change but I also know v2015.2 was just released. Any body else seeing this?

PE 2015.2 includes Puppet 4, and we changed the default value of source_permissions to ignore(see so it shouldn't be necessary to block source permissions for windows.

That said, are you saying if you do set it to ignore, then it causes errors? If so, could you please file a ticket at with steps to reproduce.
