I created a module to copy one file from the master and install to agents and it works fine with code below: but now I am trying to copy 3 different files in different directory and install each one on different set of nodes ( it is like a range of ips or dns names called A systems ...) For example: file A need to be installed on all agents in A systems File B need to be installed on all agents in B systems File C need to be installed on all agents in C Systems

  1 class profile::ma {
  3 file { '/tmp/':
  4     ensure  => 'present',
  5     replace => 'no',

  6     source  => 'puppet:///module/files/',
  7     mode   => '0755',
  8     notify  => Exec['install'],
 10 }
 12    exec { 'install':
 13      command     => '/tmp/ -i',
 14      onlyif      => '/usr/bin/test ! -e /etc/filetocheck',
  15 }

source => "puppet:///module/filename-${environment}.sh",

Should do the trick on line #6 where you have,, in the module/files directory.

This is incorrect. You want source => "puppet:///module/filename-${environment}.sh", the files directory is overlooked by puppet even though your files are in the files directory. change module to your actual module name as well.

Ah, yes. I didn't catch that. I was focused on using the ${environment} variable.

Thanks for your reply, but i should have said that I need to copy and install the file to 3 different set of agents not environment. I might nee to do lookup search or some sort like it.

So your concern is about managing different nodes/agents? Are you using the 'node' resource in site.pp? If so, you need to specifically pass the correct configuration to each node. This is usually done via the 'roles and profiles' pattern,
