My puppetdb was down and agent runs were failing. Is there anyway to configure the master so that the run will continue in this case?
We (as in the PuppetDB dev team) have added an option to the terminus that will at least provide a soft-failure on command submission, but will still fail normally upon trying to collect or query PuppetDB:
The way you turn it on, is to add the option
soft_write_failure to your
/etc/puppetlabs/puppet/puppetdb.conf file on your puppet master. For example:
[main] server = puppetdb port = 8081 soft_write_failure = true
When switched on, if any command submissions are attempted and fail, compilation will still continue with an error ... (more)
If you decided that your puppet master needs puppetDB to scale your nodes request then I guess you will need to make sure that the service is running. It's a crucial component like a messaging service for MCollective.
