i am creating a second post (different from because there is some data changing between the 2 use cases.

The case is simple

1/ install a PE
2/ dont create a new env : everything is done en production env
3/ add a second puppet agent (the one with the master + a new one)

Those 2 agents are listed in the PE MCollective Classification do a mco ping : all is OK because ActiveMQ listens on default port 61613.

Change the port to 61617 or 2016, or whatever you want :

  • on PE MCollective classification : on class puppetenterprise::profile::mcollective::agent, set stompport=YOURPORTVALUE

  • on PE ActiveMQ Broker classification: on class puppetenterprise::profile::amq::broker set stompport=YOURPORTVALUE

Start puppet runs on the both nodes to update the Broker port, and the mcollective for both agents.

In /var/log/puppetlabs/mcollective.log :
[2016-05-18T10:15:56.828924 #15660] INFO -- : activemq.rb:119:in `on_connected' Connected to stomp+ssl://mcollective@myhost.mydomain:YOURPORTVALUE

=> the connection of the agents to the brokers are OK.

However, the mco ping doesn't responde.

In my use case, the default agent provided with PE is a RedHat agent. The added agent is a Windows 2008 R2 agent.

=> the same non responsive situations appears with windows and linux agents.

Am i doing something wrong while trying to change the port on which the PE ActiveMQ Brokers listens to the connected agents?

Thanks a lot for your answers, Guillaume

Do you have some output on the mco ping? It's possible the configuration you're trying to use to trigger the ping uses the wrong port; that would be in the mcollective client configuration.

Hello again Michael, Do you mean i should configure client.cfg on the agent nodes ?

i just found : then i restarted the activemq service, nothing changed i also did a puppet agent -t on a node, and the client.cfg nor server.cfg were updated

Hello, i digged further and this time i have a different behaviour : i want to use 32226 port instead of 61613 on stomp + ssl. It is configured on my windows desktop (client.cdf and server.cfg) and in activemq.xml. when i do a mco ping from the client i have this stack in mcollective.log :
