Sorry if this is an obvious question, but I am fairly new to puppet

I have created a new module using the generate command as follows-------

puppet module generate --skip-interview root-linuxJmpServer

Notice: Generating module at /etc/puppetlabs/code/environments/production/modules/linuxJmpServer...
Notice: Populating templates...
Finished; module generated in linuxJmpServer.
[root@ast4qshstpups02 modules]#

After creating the module I ran puppet module list , but this newly created module is not showing up in the output. Also, I was trying to add this module to the node group in the PE consiole but it is not showing up there. Am I doing something wrong?

The module needs to be in a folder that matches the classname, in your case in a folder named linuxJmpServer NOT root-linuxJmpServer, according to the Autoloader behavior -

I think the intent of the puppet module generate is to create the stand-alone repository that you send to git/forge and then you are using something like r10k or puppet-librarian with a Puppetfile to bring it all together into your environment, not directly create your module within your modulepath

Thanks for the answer, If I try to create the module manually, i.e. without `puppet module generate` , it still does not show up in the module list [root@ast4qshstpups02 modules]#mkdir -p linuxJmpServer/manifests ====contents of init.pp====== class linuxJmpServer{ } What am I doing wrong?
