I am using open source puppet and trying to deploy IBM websphere on my server using puppet. I am facing an issue, where the it is trying to find the dependent file in puppet enterprise path where as i am using open soure puppet.

Error is:

Error: Failed to apply catalog: Could not find dependen Exec[concat_/etc/puppetlabs/facter/facts.d/websphere.yaml] for File[/var/lib/puppet/concat/_etc_puppetlabs_facter_facts.d_websphere.yaml/fragments/10_WebSphere85_facts] at /etc/puppet/modules/concat/manifests/fragment.pp:132

/etc/puppetlabs is something which we find in enterprise version.

Can i comment out the code in the module to overcome the issue? or should i use any other path?

Can someone help?

What module are you using? Did you built your own Websphere module, or are you using one from the Puppet Forge that assumes you are targeting Puppet Enterprise?

i am using the one from puppet forge. "joshbeard/websphere" Yes, you are correct the code assumes that i am using PE.

That module works on non-PE as well as I have used it before with one customer. The facts are built from stages of module run and not at one time so make sure you run the module couple of times.

Lupin, as i specified the module code is referring to PE path. So is that ok ? because as per my knowledge in open source it will never find the PE path right?

You'll either have to edit the module that you're using to adapt for use with Puppet open-source, or you'll have to build your own module. I don't see any other modules available to manage Websphere on Puppet open-source, unfortunately.
