Hi All,

I am newbie in Puppet. If someone could help me clear my doubt regarding the following; Does "puppet agent" always call "/etc/puppet/manifests/site.pp" to execute any modules located under "/etc/puppet/modules/".

I have following two modules (test only) "user-fedora" and "user-unix" under "/etc/puppet/modules" and my "/etc/puppet/manifests/site.pp" looks like as;

node "Fedora-14" { include user-fedora include user-unix package { "finger": ensure => installed } }

My question is if "/etc/puppet/manifests/site.pp" common for everything?

Thanks a ton!

site.pp is the global base manifest and is used by every node. However node "Fedora-14" { include user-fedora include user-unix package { "finger": ensure => installed } } will only apply to node Fedora-14 since you explicitly say so.

If in site.pp you put something like package { 'vim': ensure => installed, } then vim would be installed on every node that connects to the master and not just one node in particular.
