You'd create something like this:


class advfirewall {
  exec { 'set-allprofiles-state-off':
    command => 'netsh advfirewall set allprofiles state off',
    unless  => '...',

In the 'unless' line, you would insert a command that will return true if the netsh command has already run (note you may find you need to use 'creates' or 'onlyif' here instead of 'unless'). This is for maintaining idempotence. Read the documentation for exec and also tips for exec on Windows.

Of course, if you have nothing else in a module than this command, you probably should put this in your base profile, rather than in its own module. If you don't know what I mean by profiles, google Puppet roles & profiles.

I'll need to know more than that before I could say what you've done wrong. It'll be about files not being in the correct locations on the Puppet Master.
