I am cloning my repo and running my nodejs application using puppet. please find the code below:

package { 'git': ensure => 'latest', }

  vcsrepo { "/nodejs-helloworld":
    ensure   => latest,
    provider => git,
    require  => [ Package["git"] ],
    source   => "",
    revision => 'master',
    before   => Exec['/usr/local/bin/npm install;/usr/local/bin/npm start'],
 exec { '/usr/local/bin/npm install;/usr/local/bin/npm start':
  cwd         => '/nodejs-helloworld',
  subscribe   => Vcsrepo['/nodejs-helloworld'],
  refreshonly => true,

My repository is cloned,and also my application is running fine and npm test also works.Everything works fine. but i get connection time out error.

Error Log:

[root@ip-*******/]# puppet agent -t

As you can see here eventhough i get connection time out error, my app is running. and npm test works.

 [root@ip-********* nodejs-helloworld]# netstat -anp 2> /dev/null | grep :3000
    tcp6       0      0 :::3000                 :::*                    LISTEN      17630/node
 [root@ip-********* nodejs-helloworld]# npm test

    > nodejs-helloworld@1.0.0 test /nodejs-helloworld
    > mocha

      Test HelloWorld
        ✓ Should have the root route (46ms)
        ✓ Should have a hello world response
      2 passing (66ms)

Can anyone please tell me how to avoid the connection timeout error.

You can disable the timeout by adding it in exec{'/usr/local/bin/npm install;/usr/local/bin/npm start': timeout=>0}
