I have following code, the script is behaving differently when getting called through Puppet. Am i doing something wrong here? parsezd calls other shell scripts which are getting executed fine when parse_zd is called through normal ssh shell, but when called through puppet one of the sub scripts fails.

class ipc_zonedeployment::zd {

exec { 'deploy': command => '/bin/sh -c /opt/ipc/cop/tools/', cwd => '/opt/ipc/cop/tools/', onlyif => "test ! -f /etc/opt/ipc/deployment/zdd", path => ['/usr/bin', '/usr/sbin', '/bin',], user => 'root', group => 'root', mode => '0775',


package { 'test': ensure => installed, require => Exec['deploy'] }

I would verify the user who should be executing these scripts is the same as the user running puppet. I would also imagine that environment variables could play a big part in the confusion here.

I agree with Eric regarding environment variables. I've definitely had that bite me before. You'll have to track down which script is failing and why. Also, mode isn't a valid parameter on exec resources.
