Dear Team,

I have made the changes one of the main environment through the command puppet agent --test

When i ran this command there were several changes made to that environment After checking i got to know that puppet was stopped for that environment as the team was implementing new changes.

Now i have to revert those changes - very very critical for me.

Please could you help and guide me on how to get back those changes.

Thanks in advance
