Ubuntu 12.0.4 LTS w/ puppet master/agent 2.7.22

Using puppetlabs-f5 module , I can successfully connect to f5 BIG-IP 10.2.4

However , on attempt to connect to f5 BIP-IP 11.4.0 receive error :

err: Can't load f5 for '': getaddrinfo: Name or service not known ('')

Does puppetlabs-f5 module support connections to f5 11.4.0 ?

NOTE : ping works fine.

What output do you get when you type "ping" at the command line?

Yeah that was one of the first things I thought of :) I had our networking guys configure the dns to translate the hostname. Ping hostname works fine.

If you can't get more debug output from the agent run, the next step is to set up TCP connection monitoring (wireshark, tcpdump, etc.) to see exactly what's ...(more)
