ANNOUNCE: Facter 1.5
Hi all, I''ve finally gotten around to releasing Facter 1.5. As the version bump implies, this is a relatively significant release (for a 2.3k line program, anyway). Mostly, the biggest change is refactoring the code internally so that all of the functionality is split into separate classes in separate files. Also, the facts are all loaded on...

use name (not values!) of a dataframe inside a funktion
...of my daily examples, i am stuck with: Example 1 does work, but example 2 doesn't? How kann i tell R, that i want it to expand the string "dfb" to "dfb[,2]" inside the function. In the end i want the function to change the second variable of the dataframe dfb permanently to factor (not just inside the function). Thanks in advance! Winfried Example 1: dfa <- data.frame(a=c(1:4),b=c(1:4)) dfa[,2] <- factor(dfa[,2]) is.factor(dfa[,2]) >TRUE Example 2: dfb <- data.frame(a=c(1:4),b=c(1:4)) f.fact <- function(x) {x[,2] <<- factor(x[,2])} f.fact(dfb) is....

Force Fact within manifest
I have a requirement where I want a Fact to be stored in PuppetDB during the manifest run and not during the initial fact gathering phase. I know I can, in my manifests, create a file in /etc/facter/facts.d or I can write a Ruby script that will then be distributed by plugin sync. But both of these methods will only publis...

Vanishing facts
Hello all, I am running puppet 2.7.1 with mongrel and an apache proxy. I have been seeing an issue where it appears that the puppetmaster is completely ignoring any facts that are sent to it. When a client connects, any configuration that relies on facts shows those variables as being empty strings. (I have been testing this with a simple notify resource that prints out the IP address and the FQDN. Both of these are coming up as empty strings.) If I check the li...

Plugins and Hiera
...ear all, This is a continuation of another thread, but I think the question diverged enough to create a new one. I have a hiera hierarchy like this: :hierarchy: - %{fqdn} - %{secundary_group} - %{primary_group} - %{productname} - all And I need to define the secondary/primary groups as facts, on the nodes. Gary has suggested me to use plugins, that they will provide the facts before puppet runs... but I was thinking: for plugins to give facts, taken directly from within the puppet code, puppet needs to run first, doesn''t it? So, I guess I could create a module and a ruby...

Fact chicken and egg problem
I am trying to expose a custom fact that requires a certain gem to be installed. However, the facts are being loaded before the module is loaded (and I see why this is the case sine the fact should be made available to the module). So my question is, is there a way to avoid this chicken and egg problem? I tried putting the mod...

Problem with adding custom facts
Hi I''m trying to add extra facts to facter. The puppetd is running on Debian Etch Amd64 as Xen 3.1 guest. I''ve follow the Wiki on adding the facts. First I used relative path in the manifest and added "factsync=true" in client''s puppetd.conf. And then tested it with "puppetd -vt". But no matt...

oddness with fileserver, facts and plugins sync
I''m working with a pretty simple config at the moment to track down some issues I''m seeing with custom facts and plugins. I have factsync = true (default locations) and I have a simple fact in /var/lib/puppet/facts/ (actually it''s David''s netmask plugin) my pp file I''m testing with contains only: notice "netmask: ${netmask}" puppet -v test.pp giv...

Is there someplace this is documented?

getting array of hostnames of clients
I need to get an array of hostnames of clients of the puppet server. There doesn''t seem to be a simple way to do this so I''ve tried a few methods. I''ve tried a curl expression in a fact like this: curl -s -k -H "Accept: yaml" https://localhost:8140/production/facts_search/search?facts.nodetypet=testnodes where I''ve got a nodetype fact which works fine for me. Now, this used to work but doesn''t any more. Between it working and now...

Fact auto sync reloading
So we run puppetd as a long running ruby process on the hosts. When we update a fact that gets auto sync''d to the host it seems when puppetd wakes up and starts its catalog run it doesn''t re-sync the facts. It you run it standalone it will or if you restart the service then it will do the right thing. Do other people see this? Or have you all gone to running ou...
