Hi there! Can some one please help me with node ordering?

I have a multi server application and each node depends on some other and i need to be 100% sure that my node with DB will be installed or updated first than other node called admin and then all other nodes.

in fact I need some thing like require or before for my node definitions.

Puppet is meant to manage the configuration on individual machines. It is not a deployment/orchestration tool. There are mechanisms by which information can be passed between nodes, but the way puppet works does not allow the puppetmaster to determine in which order agents check-in.

I would look into mcollective: http://puppetlabs.com/mcollective and set it up to execute puppet runs on your servers in the order you require.
