puppet 4 comes with mcollective and setting it up to connect to a message queue server is no problem.

however installing the plugins so that i can do little more then mco ping has a problem.

first of all the packages that puppetlabs has made available in its repositories are not usable anymore. they all require mcollective-common which in turn want to remove puppet-agent and puppetserver packages.

second when i want to manually install the plugins in the libdir i found that firstly there is no libdir under the normal location ( debian : /usr/share/mcollective )
after i create the correct directories and place the files and restart mcollective. i do not see the new plugin with mco inventory.

Does anyone know how to setup plugins with mcollective that comes with puppet 4?

I hope Plabs will provide real packages soon.
