Why is Puppet ignoring the node declaration?

I've just added a new node. The DNS for the node is fine, from itself and the puppetmaster.

But the node defintion is being ignored. I've tried just the short hostname, the FQDN, and a regex that will uniquely match the host. Adding "notify" resources to output the hostname and FQDN show that it does have the expected name.

Yet when puppet agent -t is run on the node, it does not see it's node definition. (And yes, I've checked this using the --debug flag as well as adding "notify" to the node definition.)

Can you please verify that puppet agent --configprint certname matches your node definition? This is what puppet will check against by default and by default the certname should be equal to the fqdn of your node, but just make sure that it is.

The issue has gone away. I'm unsure what caused it.
