Hello All,

i have created a module called Sudoers here is the content of the init.pp

File { owner => "root", group => "root", mode  => "0440" }

    file {"/etc/sudoers":
            ensure => "present",
            content => template("sudoers/sudoers.erb"),

    file {  "/etc/sudoers.d":
                    ensure  => "directory",
                    owner   => "root",
                    group   => "root",
                    recurse => "false",
                    mode    => 550,

and this is the content of sudoers.erb

root                            ALL=(ALL)       NOPASSWD: ALL

# Admins
user1                      ALL=(ALL)       NOPASSWD: ALL
user2                      ALL=(ALL)       NOPASSWD: ALL

now when i do puppet agent --test

Hi Greg, Thank you for your reply.

I am using site.pp

import "nodes/*.pp"

and then inside nodes folder

  if $::ipaddress =~ /^10\.162\.[5,6]\.\d{1,3}$/ {
        include user::groups
        include user::sysadmin

please note that the /etc/sudoers it is not get updated inside puppet master as well

Thank you again

How are you classifying that Puppet code to your node? Are you using site.pp or some other means to do that? Ultimately, you have to tell Puppet that a certain node should be classified with certain classes.

This page should help a bit:

UPDATE: It looks like you are matching on a specific IP address range to classify your node. However, based on the hostname that I see in your puppet agent run, your node may not be in the correct IP range:

Info: Caching catalog for ip-10-167-26-44.

You can confirm that if you log into your node and run "facter ipaddress". Does the IP address match the range you have specified?
