Specifying Configuration Parameters

On The Command-Line +++++++++++++++++++ Every Puppet executable (with the exception of puppetdoc) accepts all of the parameters below, but not all of the arguments make sense for every executable.

I have tried to be as thorough as possible in the descriptions of the arguments, so it should be obvious whether an argument is appropriate or not.

These parameters can be supplied to the executables either as command-line options or in the configuration file. For instance, the command-line invocation below would set the configuration directory to /private/puppet:

 $ puppet agent --confdir=/private/puppet

Note that boolean options are turned on and off with a slightly different syntax on the command line:

 $ puppet agent --storeconfigs
 $ puppet agent --no-storeconfigs

The invocations above will enable and disable, respectively, the storage of the client configuration.

Configuration Files +++++++++++++++++++

As mentioned above, the configuration parameters can also be stored in a configuration file, located in the configuration directory. As root, the default configuration directory is /etc/puppet, and as a regular user, the default configuration directory is ~user/.puppet. As of 0.23.0, all executables look for puppet.conf in their configuration directory (although they previously looked for separate files). For example, puppet.conf is located at /etc/puppet/puppet.conf as root and ~user/.puppet/puppet.conf as a regular user by default.

All executables will set any parameters set within the [main] section, and each executable will also use one of the [master], [agent].

File Format '''''''''''

The file follows INI-style formatting. Here is an example of a very simple puppet.conf file:

   confdir = /private/puppet
   storeconfigs = true

Note that boolean parameters must be explicitly specified as true or false as seen above.

If you need to change file parameters (e.g., reset the mode or owner), do so within curly braces on the same line:

   myfile = /tmp/whatever {owner = root, mode = 644}

If you're starting out with a fresh configuration, you may wish to let the executable generate a template configuration file for you by invoking the executable in question with the --genconfig command. The executable will print a template configuration to standard output, which can be redirected to a file like so:

 $ puppet agent --genconfig > /etc/puppet/puppet.conf

Note that this invocation will replace the contents of any pre-existing puppet.conf file, so make a backup of your present config if it contains valuable information.

Like the --genconfig argument, the executables also accept a --genmanifest argument, which will generate a manifest that can be used to manage all of Puppet's directories and files and prints it to standard output. This can likewise be redirected to a file:

 $ puppet agent --genmanifest > /etc/puppet/manifests/site.pp

Puppet can also create user and group accounts for itself (one puppet group and one puppet user) if it is invoked as root with the --mkusers argument:

 $ puppet agent --mkusers


The puppet agent and puppet master executables catch some signals for special handling. Both daemons catch (SIGHUP), which forces the server to restart tself. Predictably, interrupt and terminate (SIGINT and SIGTERM) will shut down the server, whether it be an instance of puppet agent or puppet master.

Sending the SIGUSR1 signal to an instance of puppet agent will cause it to immediately begin a new configuration transaction with the server. This signal has no effect on puppet master.

Configuration Parameter Reference

Below is a list of all documented parameters. Not all of them are valid with all Puppet executables, but the executables will ignore any inappropriate values.

async_storeconfigs ++++++++++++++++++

Whether to use a queueing system to provide asynchronous database integration. Requires that puppetqd be running and that 'PSON' support for ruby be installed.

Default: false

authconfig ++++++++++

The configuration file that defines the rights to the different namespaces and methods. This can be used as a coarse-grained authorization system for both puppet agent and puppet master.

Default: $confdir/namespaceauth.conf

autoflush +++++++++

Whether log files should always flush to disk.

Default: false

autosign ++++++++

Whether to enable autosign. Valid values are true (which autosigns any key request, and is a very bad idea), false (which never autosigns any key request), and the path to a file, which uses that configuration file to determine which keys to sign.

Default: $confdir/autosign.conf

bindaddress +++++++++++

The address a listening server should bind to. Mongrel servers default to and WEBrick defaults to

bucketdir +++++++++

Where FileBucket files are stored.

Default: $vardir/bucket

ca ++

Default: $server

ca_ttl ++++++

The default TTL for new certificates; valid values must be an integer, optionally followed by one of the units 'y' (years of 365 days), 'd' (days), 'h' (hours), or 's' (seconds). The unit defaults to seconds. If this parameter is set, ca_days is ignored. Examples are '3600' (one hour) and '1825d', which is the same as '5y' (5 years)

Default: 5y

cacert ++++++

The CA certificate.

Default: $cadir/ca_crt.pem

cacrl +++++

The certificate revocation list (CRL) for the CA. Will be used if present but otherwise ignored.

A Complete listing of all certificates

Default: $cadir/inventory.txt

certdir +++++++

The certificate directory.

Default: $ssldir/certs

certdnsnames ++++++++++++

The DNS names on the Server certificate as a colon-separated list. If it's anything other than an empty string, it will be used as an alias in the created certificate. By default, only the server gets an alias set up, and only for 'puppet'.

certificate_revocation ++++++++++++++++++++++

Whether certificate revocation should be supported by downloading a Certificate Revocation List (CRL) to all clients. If enabled, CA chaining will almost definitely not work.

Default: true

certname ++++++++

The name to use when handling certificates. Defaults to the fully qualified domain name.

Default: pelin.members.linode.com

classfile +++++++++

The file in which puppet agent stores a list of the classes associated with the retrieved configuration. Can be loaded in the separate puppet executable using the --loadclasses option.

color +++++

Whether to use colors when logging to the console. Valid values are ansi (equivalent to true), html (mostly used during testing with TextMate), and false, which produces no color.

Default: ansi

confdir +++++++

The main Puppet configuration directory. The default for this parameter is calculated based on the user. If the process is running as root or the user that puppet master is supposed to run as, it defaults to a system directory, but if it's running as any other user, it defaults to being in ~.

Default: /etc/puppet

config ++++++

The configuration file for doc.

Default: $confdir/puppet.conf

config_version ++++++++++++++

How to determine the configuration version. By default, it will be the time that the configuration is parsed, but you can provide a shell script to override how the version is determined. The output of this script will be added to every log message in the reports, allowing you to correlate changes on your hosts to the source version on the server.

configprint +++++++++++

Print the value of a specific configuration parameter. If a parameter is provided for this, then the value is printed and puppet exits. Comma-separate multiple values. For a list of all values, specify 'all'. This feature is only available in Puppet versions higher than 0.18.4.

configtimeout +++++++++++++

How long the client should wait for the configuration to be retrieved before considering it a failure. This can help reduce flapping if too many clients contact the server at one time.

Facts that are dynamic; these facts will be ignored when deciding whether changed facts should result in a recompile. Multiple facts should be comma-separated.

Default: memorysize,memoryfree,swapsize,swapfree

environment +++++++++++

The environment Puppet is running in. For clients (e.g., puppet agent) this determines the environment itself, which is used to find modules and much more. For servers (i.e., puppet master) this provides the default environment for nodes we know nothing about.

Default: production

evaltrace +++++++++

Whether each resource should log when it is being evaluated. This allows you to interactively see exactly what is being done.

Default: false

external_nodes ++++++++++++++

An external command that can produce node information. The output must be a YAML dump of a hash, and that hash must have one or both of classes and parameters, where classes is an array and parameters is a hash. For unknown nodes, the commands should exit with a non-zero exit code. This command makes it straightforward to store your node mapping information in other data sources like databases.

Default: none

Default: $vardir/facts/

factpath ++++++++

Where Puppet should look for facts. Multiple directories should be colon-separated, like normal PATH variables.

Default: false

fileserverconfig ++++++++++++++++

Where the fileserver configuration is stored.

Default: false

genconfig +++++++++

Whether to just print a configuration to stdout and exit. Only makes sense when used interactively. Takes into account arguments specified on the CLI.

hostpubkey ++++++++++

Where individual hosts store and look for their public key.

Default: $publickeydir/$certname.pem

http_compression ++++++++++++++++

Allow http compression in REST communication with the master. This setting might improve performance for agent -> master communications over slow WANs. Your puppetmaster needs to support compression (usually by activating some settings in a reverse-proxy in front of the puppetmaster, which rules out webrick). It is harmless to activate this settings if your master doesn't support compression, but if it supports it, this setting might reduce performance on high-speed LANs.

Default: false

http_proxy_host +++++++++++++++

The HTTP proxy host to use for outgoing connections. Note: You may need to use a FQDN for the server hostname when using a proxy.

Default: none

http_proxy_port +++++++++++++++

The HTTP proxy port to use for outgoing connections

Default: 3128

httplog +++++++

Where the puppet agent web server logs.

Default: $logdir/http.log

Default: false

ignoreimport ++++++++++++

A parameter that can be used in commit hooks, since it enables you to parse-check a single file rather than requiring that all files exist.

Default: false

Default: false

keylength +++++++++

The bit length of keys.

Default: 1024

Default: puppetvar

ldapstring ++++++++++

The search string used to find an LDAP node.

Default: (&(objectclass=puppetClient)(cn=%s))

Default: false

ldapuser ++++++++

The user to use to connect to LDAP. Must be specified as a full DN.

lexical +++++++

Whether to use lexical scoping (vs. dynamic).

Default: false

libdir ++++++

An extra search path for Puppet. This is only useful for those files that Puppet will load on demand, and is only guaranteed to work for those cases. In fact, the autoload mechanism is responsible for making sure this directory is in Ruby's search path

Default: $vardir/lib

listen ++++++

Whether puppet agent should listen for connections. If this is true, then by default only the runner server is started, which allows remote authorized and authenticated nodes to connect and trigger puppet agent runs.

Default: false

Default: $logdir/puppetmaster.log

masterport ++++++++++

Which port puppet master listens on.

Default: 8140

maximum_uid +++++++++++

The maximum allowed UID. Some platforms use negative UIDs but then ship with tools that do not know how to handle signed ints, so the UIDs show up as huge numbers that can then not be fed back into the system. This is a hackish way to fail in a slightly more useful way when that happens.

Default: 4294967290

mkusers +++++++

Whether to create the necessary user and group that puppet agent will run as.

Default: false

modulepath ++++++++++

The search path for modules as a colon-separated list of directories.

pluginsource ++++++++++++

From where to retrieve plugins. The standard Puppet file type is used for retrieval, so anything that is a valid file source can be used here.

Default: puppet://$server/plugins

pluginsync ++++++++++

Whether plugins should be synced with the central server.

Default: false

postrun_command +++++++++++++++

A command to run after every agent run. If this command returns a non-zero return code, the entire Puppet run will be considered to have failed, even though it might have performed work during the normal run.

preferred_serialization_format ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

The preferred means of serializing ruby instances for passing over the wire. This won't guarantee that all instances will be serialized using this method, since not all classes can be guaranteed to support this format, but it will be used for all classes that support it.

Default: pson

prerun_command ++++++++++++++

A command to run before every agent run. If this command returns a non-zero return code, the entire Puppet run will fail.

Default: $logdir/puppetd.log

puppetport ++++++++++

Which port puppet agent listens on.

Default: 8139

The maximum time to delay before runs. Defaults to being the same as the run interval.

Default: $runinterval

ssl_client_header +++++++++++++++++

The header containing an authenticated client's SSL DN. Only used with Mongrel. This header must be set by the proxy to the authenticated client's SSL DN (e.g., /CN=puppet.puppetlabs.com). See http://projects.puppetlabs.com/projects/puppet/wiki/Using_Mongrel for more information.


ssl_client_verify_header ++++++++++++++++++++++++

Where Puppet looks for template files. Can be a list of colon-seperated directories.

Default: $vardir/templates

thin_storeconfigs +++++++++++++++++

Boolean; wether storeconfigs store in the database only the facts and exported resources. If true, then storeconfigs performance will be higher and still allow exported/collected resources, but other usage external to Puppet might not work

Default: false

trace +++++

Whether to print stack traces on some errors

Default: false

use_cached_catalog ++++++++++++++++++

Whether to only use the cached catalog rather than compiling a new catalog on every run. Puppet can be run with this enabled by default and then selectively disabled when a recompile is desired.

Default: false

usecacheonfailure +++++++++++++++++

Whether to use the cached configuration when the remote configuration will not compile. This option is useful for testing new configurations, where you want to fix the broken configuration rather than reverting to a known-good one.

Default: true

user ++++

The user puppet master should run as.

Default: puppet

vardir ++++++

Where Puppet stores dynamic and growing data. The default for this parameter is calculated specially, like confdir_.
