I have following puppet code in a manifest:

    tomcat::setenv::entry {'JAVA_OPTS':
  value => "-Xms128m -Xmx12048m -XX:MaxPermSize=2024m",

but running

sudo puppet agent --test

at puppet agent, causes following error:

Error: /Stage[main]/Main/Node[software]/Tomcat::Setenv::Entry[JAVAOPTS] /Concat[/usr/share/tomcat7029/bin/]/ Exec[concat/usr/share/tomcat7029/bin/]: Could not evaluate: /usr/bin/env: ruby: No such file or directory

At puppet agent I've installed ruby from source, not rvm, and following command says me:

software:~/ # /usr/bin/env ruby --version
ruby 2.1.7p400 (2015-08-18 revision 51632) [x86_64-linux]
software:~/ # pwd
software:~/ #

At puppet master, Ruby has been installed with puppetserver package, and above command says same things.

How to figure this out, please?

[Edit 1]

After running:

sudo puppet agent --test --debug

these are interesting output which may help:

Debug: Exec concat/usr/share/tomcat7029/bin/ Executing check '/opt/puppetlabs/puppet/cache/concat/bin/concatfragments.rb -o "/opt/puppetlabs/puppet/cache/concat/" -d "/opt/puppetlabs/puppet/cache/concat/" -l -t'

Debug: Executing: '/opt/puppetlabs/puppet/cache/concat/bin/concatfragments.rb -o "/opt/puppetlabs/puppet/cache/concat/" -d "/opt/puppetlabs/puppet/cache/concat/" -l -t'

[mNotice: /Stage[main]/Main/Node[software]/Tomcat::Setenv::Entry[JAVAOPTS]/Concat[/usr/share/tomcat7029/bin/]/File[/usr/share/tomcat7029/bin/]: Dependency Exec[concat/usr/share/tomcat70_29/bin/] has failures: true

File fragments.concat.out and directory both exist and that directory has a sub-directory named fragments which contains a file named 10_setenv-JAVA_OPTS. All things appear OK! but I also tried the above execute command (/opt/puppetlabs/puppet/cache/concat/bin/concatfragments.rb ...) in command line manually and same output appeared, /usr/bin/env: ruby: No such file or directory.

Are you able to run the script successfully by hand on the Puppet agent machine? Is the ruby package installed on the Puppet agent machine prior to the invocation of the script by Puppet?

@GregLarkin,On Puppet agent machine, still there is no any `` file because tomcat does not have this file in it's bin folder by default and I expect Puppet to create one.and yes,the ruby package is installed.I installed it by compiling from source before puppet installation which was needed

@GregLarkin, I updated the question with output of debug messages. It seems that it does not have any problem with ruby installation itself, but `concatfragments.rb` expect some file or directory which does not exist.

@GregLarkin, I resolved it as below. Thank you for your attention and sorry for inconvenience.

I'm genius! The problem was with sudo which resets $PATH environment variable to minimum and so, does not know ruby any more. To avoid this, I edited /etc/sudoers with following command:

sduo visudo


sudo vi /etc/sudoers

then edited following line as:

Defaults env_keep += "PATH ...

Actually I added PATH to env_keep which means sudo should keep this variable unchanged ;)
