Compatibility Issues: Oracle.Solaris11/Puppet( v3.6.2 ) not structurally lining up with Oracle.Linux.Enterprise (4.2.1 )

As an example -> why there is no conf.d directory in Solaris11 Puppet(v3.6.2) directory structure.

OracleLinux6: /etc/puppetlabs/nginx/conf.d /etc/puppetlabs/puppetserver/conf.d /etc/puppetlabs/puppetdb/conf.d /etc/puppetlabs/console-services/conf.d

There are two reasons I can think of:

There is a Major Version Difference between Puppet 3 and Puppet 4

Puppet 4 is a major version ahead of Puppet 3 and lots of things have changed --- including the layout of files installed on disk. An overview of the filesystem changes can be found on this docs page:

Solaris is a Puppet Agent Platform and Oracle Linux is a Puppet Master Platform

The directories related to nginx, puppetserver and console-services are only present on PE Master nodes. Solaris is a PE Agent node and so these components will never be installed there. An overview of which components get installed on PE Agent and Master nodes can be found on this docs page:
