I moved the production modules and the node definitions to /etc/puppet/prod/modules and /etc/puppet/prod/manifests/nodes I made the change in the puppet.conf but by the looks of certain commands the puppet server still shows the modules in the old places even though I changed them in the puppet.conf and restarted the puppet master process. When I run the commands below they should output /etc/puppet/prod/manifests and /etc/puppet/prod/modules because that is what I put in the puppet.conf file.

[root@ct-eng-pup puppet]# puppet agent --configprint manifestdir
/etc/puppet/manifests ...

Could you reformat the last part of your post ? It's unreadble and you hardly get any answer.

I've fixed the formatting. Two comments: a) you're using "puppet agent" to print out master related settings, use "puppet master". It isn't clear from the snippet of ...(more)

I put in the wrong commands but where it is agent or master I get the same thing, see below. [root@ct-eng-pup manifests]# puppet master --configprint manifest /etc/puppet/manifests/site.pp [root@ct-eng-pup manifests]# puppet master --configprint modulepath /etc/puppet/modules:/usr/share/puppet/modules [root@ct-eng-pup manifests]# puppet master --configprint config /etc/puppet/puppet.conf [root@ct-eng-pup manifests]# puppet master --configprint manifestdir /etc/puppet/manifests [root@ct-eng-pup manifests]#

The only thing I get when I run the puppet command " puppet agent --server ct-eng-pup.caretools.ent --test" on the agents is the below. [root@pdlnx-adpt03 ~]# puppet agent --server ct-eng-pup ... (more)

This should be a comment and not a solution.

Do you have something like that in your config ?

 manifestdir = /etc/puppet/prod/manifests

 manifestdir = /etc/puppet/manifests

That would explain why the puppet agent output even on the master is not what you expect...

# puppet agent --configprint manifestdir

But try :

# puppet master --configprint manifestdir

I expect :


Overall the server behaves properly (see your first 'answer'), which is the most important ;-)
