We have running Puppet Master 3.8 in our environment. Now I'm in the middle of upgrading puppet to PuppetServer5. But when client is connected puppet changes the ownership of some files to UID(1012) which is totally vague.

Note: Client is running Version 3.8 while server is running PuppetServer 5 Here are the manifest details

file { '/etc/inet/ntp.conf':
            ensure => file,
            mode   => '0644',
            source => "puppet:///modules/ntp/ntp.conf",

On client puppet puppet changes ownership to some unknown UID-1012

I'm able to resolve this issue with attribute "owner" but I need to know where this UID-1012 is coming from? What if I dont specify the attribute "owner".

I have found the issue with this problem. Modules on PuppetServer was in the ownership of the user having UID 1012 while no user with this UID was there on the client so it was giving it to the ownership of UID-1012
