Is there a way to take three facts that every host reports: "$::ipaddress,", "$::fqdn", "$::hostname" push them into an array or arrays and use them in a class that generates a config file. Still reltivly new to puppet and ruby and searched all around couldn't find anything other than this:

but that is just one piece of the puzzle.

going into this:

class myclass  {
  file { "::${hostname}.cfg"
    path => '/tmp/test',
    ensure => 'file',
    content => template ('myclass/hosts.cfg.erb'),

Thanks for any help

Hi Allen, Can you share what you'd like your template file to look like (even without the variable...)?

You can unite multiple facts into an array just by specifying a literal array, so: [$ipaddress, $fqdn, $hostname]
