In previous i used puppet 2015.v.3.1, in that i pass a variable from one class to another by the same name. Eg: In Hiera,

   currentgen::prodequ_backup_path: 'C:\Backup'

I got a hiera value to profiles::currentgen

  class profiles::currentgen
  ($prodequ_backup_loc        = hiera ('currentgen::prodequ_backup_path')
        notify {"test":

then i get this $prodequbackuploc to my params.pp file Eg:

  class currentgen::currentgen_parms
        ($prodequ_backup_loc       = $prodequ_backup_loc)
         inherits profiles::currentgen{
         notify {"1test":
         message=>"this is $prodequ_backup_loc",

When i call currentgen::currentgen_parms in site.pp, it notifies whatever in code.

but now i migrate my puppet version to 2016.1.1 it gives error like below

Error: Could not retrieve catalog from remote server: Error 400 on SERVER: Evaluation Error: Error while evaluating a Function Call, default expression for $prodequ_backup_loc tries to illegally access not yet evaluated $prodequ_backup_loc at /etc/puppetlabs/code/environments/production/manifests/site.pp:73:2 on node node_name.

if i change the name of variable mean it works. is this error caused by
