Hello All,

I'm working on the PowerofPuppet quest, but can't get the Graphite class to appear in the Puppet Enterprise Web Console. The page shows the Class Definition Last Updated 11 hours ago, and the Refresh button is not working.

Thoughts? Help?

I figured out what was going on and am posting the answer in hopes that I can help someone else.

The root cause was that pe-puppetserver.service was not running. Here's what I did:

  • Run: systemctl status pe-puppetserver.service

This showed the status of the service. It listed:

"Loaded: loaded" "Active: inactive"

So, the service was enabled, but not started. Just run the following to start the service:

systemctl start pe-puppetserver.service

This will start the Puppet Server service and will allow the web console to refresh appropriately, therefore loading the Graphite classes.

Alright, back to my own puppet quests!

I had the same issue, but the symptoms (loaded/inactive) were not the same (in my case the server was loaded/active). But running the "systemctl start pe-puppetserver.service" fixed it anyway. I had to relogin to the server and at that point the graphite class appeared.
