the first puppet agent runs abnormal delay

asked 2015-08-26 09:49:16 -0600


after creating a new node, the first execution runs after several hours. In general, we must wait the next day to see the configuration applied on the client. after this time , all the runs work well.

Does someone know why we have this problem and is there a parameter to set to change this delay ?

Thank you for your help .

What operating system is on your client?

Hi Francois,

You should configure loglevel at debug and give us more detail (

can you be more precise concerning your issue:

  • does the catalogue compilation on the master take hours?
  • does the run on the agent take hours?

Sur le serveur, je créé un nouveau fichier .pp pour un nouveau node dans /etc/puppet/manifest/nodes

Sur le client, je fais "puppet agent -td" . Le serveur répond dans un délai très court, mais les configurations ne s'appliquent pas . Il faut attendre, la plupart du temps le lendemain pour qu'enfin elles s'appliquent.

Et c'est uniquement après la création d'un nouveau node que le problème se présente. Une fois la premiere configuration appliquée , les modifications suivantes dans le fichier pp sont appliquées tout de suite.

La connexion au serveur est immediate et la réponse aussi.

In english: On the server, I create a new .pp file for a new node in /etc/puppet/manifest/nodes.

On the client i run the command : puppet agent -td

The server answers in a short time but the configurations are not applied. I have to wait a very long time ( the next day) for the command to succeed.

The problem occurs only at the creation of a new node. Once the first configuration applied on the node, the following modification in the pp file are immediately applied.
