I am checking the file content in file1(which is in puppet master) with file2(which is in agent machine). if the content are same mean i replace the file1 from master with file2 in agent. if the content are different mean do that i am using the file resource like below,

class ysample::testing3{
      source=> "puppet://",
      recurse   => "true",
      show_diff => "true",
      validate_cmd =>"/opt/ytesting -t -f %",
      validate_replacement => "%",

but it will not replace the file with same timestamp . give the solution to replace the file with same timestamp and how to check whether our resource are apply or not ? after i executing this command

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 37 Dec 22 18:51 ymyfiles.txt  >>>(in master machine)
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 37 Dec 22 18:19 ymyfiles.txt >>>(in agent machine)

Are you asking whether you can replace a file on the master with a file on the agent? If so, the answer is no if you use a "file" resource. Puppet resources cause changes on the agent, and the file resource is used to manage a file on the agent, possibly using a source file on the master.

If I have misunderstood your question, can you clarify it a bit for me?
