Trying to get puppet & factor working on SmartOS. Installed first from pkgsrc, then upgraded puppet via gem. Puppet itself seems to run OK (but haven't applied a manifest yet...)

Facter fails:

# facter Error: invalid byte sequence in UTF-8

# facter --debug Not an EC2 host Error: invalid byte sequence in UTF-8

# facter --version 1.7.3 # puppet --version 3.2.3 # uname -a SunOS 00-50-45-5f-13-ce 5.11 joyent_20131102T215831Z i86pc i386 i86pc

Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated!

Can you post the full logs into a pastebin ( gist/pastie etc) and link to them? Sanitized as needed. What locale do you have set as the default on this system?
