Hi.

Puppet Open Source here. The environment is:

Hosts: RHEL 6 - Facter 1.6.7, Puppet 3.4.2 and Hiera 1.3.4

Server side: Puppet 3.4.2


I am trying to set up RHEL 7 boxes and provision them using our existing Puppet server 3.4.2.

On the RHEL 7 boxes the minimum versions that are close to what we are currently running which will run on RHEL 7 boxes is the following: Facter: 1.7.6 Puppet: 3.5.1 Hiera: 1.3.4

As a test on RHEL 6 boxes I upgraded the puppet agent to version 3.5.1 to test if puppet runs will run successfully and everything would be OK.

Everything was fine.

Now that I have a RHEL 7 box up and provisioned I am getting the following error when I do a puppet run:

"Error: Could not retrieve local facts: no implicit conversion of nil into String"

Any one have any idea what the problem could be?
