I want to reinstall my puppetmaster-server (it's on a root-server, among many other services, and i want to move it into a seperate VM).

The puppetmaster already has many modules installed. Can i just make a backup of the modules folder of the current puppetmaster server, and then copy them into the new puppetmaster, or do i have to reinstall all modules via "puppet module install.... "?

I think that you can copy the directory directly. At least this is how I manage my own modules (with git, but this is similar to copy).

Hope this helps.
