ProgramData directory missing and puppet.conf ignored
I've just installed the agent on a fresh Windows 2008 R2 VM in AWS. I have installed twice, actually. Once with my account which has administrator permissions and once with the actual Administrator account. Neither time has a directory called
ProgramData been created. All of the files end up under
C:/ProgramFiles/Puppet Labs/Puppet/... including the
ProgramData directory an artifact from a bygone era in Puppet documentation? Am I supposed to create the directory?
This becomes an issue because I'm trying to modify the configuration of the agent. When I installed it I entered the FQDN of the Puppet Master, but now I'm trying to change it while testing some other stuff. If I create a
server = entry in
C:/ProgramFiles/Puppet Labs/Puppet/puppet/conf/puppet.conf it is ignored. Instead, running the agent uses the Puppet Master entered during installation. Where is that stored if not under
C:/ProgramFiles/Puppet Labs/Puppet/puppet/conf/puppet.conf? Is it in the registry?
