puppet device assuming top level /home/user/.puppet

Ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS server with puppet master and agent serving as f5_proxy

I have located all modules, manifests, and config files under top level /etc/puppet


However on executing

$ puppet device

puppet outputs a slew of resource-not-found errors apparently because puppet is searching under top level /home/{myaccount}/.puppet

How could this happen ? Could it be that puppet was installed multiple times on this server in multiple contexts ?

How can I reconfigure Puppet to assume top-level dir = /etc/puppet ?

If you "su" (or sudo) to the root user, puppet will operate on the /etc/puppet directory instead.

Thanks Greg. I ran `sudo puppet device` and this led to another question : `https://ask.puppetlabs.com/question/1943/f5-gem-install-on-device-proxy-agent/`. Could you please take a look ?

I just got back from vacation and am catching up now. Did you solve this problem? The question you referenced above seems to be deleted now.

Hi Greg. I made some limited progress with F5 but am still encountering serious problems. Could you please take a look ? https://ask.puppetlabs.com/question/2026/puppet-f5-device-config-partition-doesnt-exist/
