I have encounter really weird behaviour which goes against what I have learned, tutorial says etc. So I would be glad if someone could explain why that is happening. I have a role module which is made up of composition of profiles (role-profile pattern). My role consists:

   class role::lab_prg_c2_dn inherits lab_prg_c2 {
    class { 'profile::cluster_data_node':
      namenode_fqdn          => $role::lab_prg_c2::namenode_fqdn,
      secondarynamenode_fqdn => $role::lab_prg_c2::secondarynamenode_fqdn,          

First class installs technology and second one installs our components and items which are build on top of technology. Hence the technology need to be installed first, thats the reason for "->" dependency. However this ... (more)

Class declaration looks like resources, but they are not resources, so I don't believe you can use the relationship shorthand. However the reference syntax should work, try:

Class['profile::cluster_data_node'] -> Class['bigdatasolution']

If this is always going to be the case, you can just put the line above in the bigdatasolution class.

Shouldn't that be solved by adding: class{'bigdatasolution': reqire => Class['profile::cluster_data_node'] } as I tried this one as well with no expected result. That should specify the ordering as well, right?

I think your issue is more likely a problem with class containment, than class ordering. The classes are in order, but they do not offer automatic containment of other classes ...(more)

Reference syntax didn't fix the issue. Still for some reason resources from bigdata solution are synchronized first
