I have a module which runs successfully after i do export {name}={value} manually, but if i unset the environment variable {name} and execute the puppet agent -t am getting error.

So , the module am referring is puppetlabs-aws and the variable {name} i have specified above is AWS_REGION.

"Error: Could not run: Puppet detected a problem with the information returned from AWS when looking up ec2vpcsubnet in us-east-1. The specific error was:

The vpc ID 'xxxxx' does not exist

Rather than report on ec2vpcsubnet resources in an inconsistent state we have exited. This could be because some other process is modifying AWS at the same time."

Note: vpc exists in the us-east-1 region

within your module could you try adding something like:

exec { ''awsconf':
 command => '/etc/profile.d/',
 path    => '/usr/local/bin/:/bin/',
 user    => '0',

} would contain say:

export AWS_REGION=us-east-1
